Girls night out again + their GBF.

I am indebted to that wonderful site, for this different shot of one of our favourite photographs here (see sidebar, right).
Thats Vivien Leigh, Kay Kendall, and their gay best friend Noel Coward welcoming Lauren Bacall to London, in January 1959. (As mentioned here before, Kay was gone by September that year, but Bacall soldiered on for 50+ years, until 2014. A night out drinking cocktails could hardly get more glamorous.

  1. Of course I saw Lauren on stage twice, in APPLAUSE and SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH and then when she signed my copy of her book and I said "Thank you, Miss Bacall" she beamed back at me and said, "No, thank you". Or is that name-dropping??
