Before Hollywood’s contemporary fascination with everything Retro, there were actual actors and actresses who embodied this very notion of style and actually worked hard at their craft, for e.g Lauren Bacall. She was not just another beautiful face who played the femme fatal in several film-noirs such as “The Big Sleep” (1946), “Dark Passage” (1947) etc. but also shined on Broadway.
