Probably unpopular opinion but Lauren Bacall was even more beautiful than Marilyn imo

They are both beautiful in their own way but if I had to choose it would be Bacall. My gosh, she is beautiful.

I don't find Marilyn all that great. Never have. Never understood the hype.

I feel like Marilyn looked fake, honestly. One, her hair often looks artificial blonde (unlike say, Grace Kelly), and two, the sex symbol appeal was just overdone. After seeing stuff like How to Marry a Millionaire, non-sexual comedy was much more her knack (I really think she could have ranked up there with Carol Burnett or Lucille Ball if she worked at it). Being a sex symbol will eventually fade, being able to make people laugh never will. Sadly, that's not what the studios and media wanted in her.

Totally agree. And have you seen Niagara, a rare example of an early 1950s film noir shot in color? She plays a vile human being using a sex-kitten exterior. She’s excellent.

Her eyebrows don't stop.

One hell of a cleavage on Bacall though!

Man. Pretty girls are….pretty.

Most people want to meet Marilyn Monroe, but I think Lauren Bacall is even more interesting. Something about her voice, her walk, her stance--something just so confident. She has the kind of beauty that demands to be taken seriously.

Lauren Bacall's first cousin was Shimon Peres, the Prime minister of Israel.

Becall’s eyes are just mesmerising.

Bacall was never the same after she took a right hook from Chris moltisanti

Is that Patrick Swayze from Too Wong Fu on the left?

Bacall looks like a dude in drag in that photo.

Whoever colorized it didn't do her any favors.
