Lauren Bacall (1924-2014) was a legendary actress, best known for film noir movies such as The Big Sleep (opposite husband Humphrey Bogart), stage appearances, and recent television work in such series as The Sopranos.
- In the "Beauty" chapter of Miss Piggy's Guide to Life, she discusses how conventionally pretty faces like any Miss America winner cannot be called to mind as images, "But now try to picture Lauren Bacall. Or Katharine Hepburn. Or moi. You see? I rest my case."
- In the Bert and Ernie's Great Adventures "Detectives" episode, Malty tells Veronica Lambshank that it's easy to whistle, "You just put your lips together, and blow." This is a quote of a line famously said by Lauren Bacall to Humphrey Bogart in the 1944 movie To Have and Have Not.
- In Sesame Street Unpaved, it's pointed out that Herry Monster shares his astrological sign, Virgo, with Lauren Bacall ("If you need me, just whistle. You know how to whistle, don't you, Herry?", quoting from the same scene of To Have and Have Not).
