Legendary Hollywood actress Lauren Bacall has died from a suspected stroke aged 89 at home in New York.
The actress was an icon of the Hollywood film noir era, and had a career that spanned 70 years, starring in films like How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996) and Murder on the Orient Express (1974).
She made her debut opposite her future husband, Humphrey Bogart, aged 19 in To Have and Have Not.
A Twitter account of the Bogart estate, run by Bacall's son, tweeted: "With deep sorrow, yet with great gratitude for her amazing life, we confirm the passing of Lauren Bacall."

Born in Brooklyn in 1924, she became one of Hollywood's biggest stars. Her on-screen partnership with Bogart continued after her powerful debut, and they also starred in Key Largo, The Big Sleep and Dark Passage together.
They were married in 1945 and had two children together, Stephen Humphrey Bogart and Leslie Bogart. They stayed married until his death from cancer in 1957.
She dated Frank Sinatra in the years that followed, before marrying her second husband, Jason Robards, in 1961. They had a son together, Sam Robards, but later divorced in 1969.
The star appeared in over 30 films, and her career had a second boost in 1996 when she starred opposite Barbara Streisand in The Mirror Has Tow Faces, which earned her a Golden Globe Award and an Oscar nomination.
Streisand has paid tribute to Lauren and, according to the BBC, said: "What a terrible loss for us all. It was my privilege to have known her, to have acted with her. And, most of all, to have had her as a wise and loving friend.
"She was an original. Even with all those great films we can visit again and again, she will be missed."
A host of other stars have also paid tribute to the actress on social media.
