NEW YORK -- Lauren Bacall, a star of Hollywood's Golden Age, died Tuesday morning from a reported stroke.

Bacall's career began in 1944 with the Humphrey Bogart film "To Have and Have Not." The collaboration with Bogart continued in several other films, including "Key Largo." The two became romantically involved and married in 1945.

Bacall returned home to New York City in the 1950s, where she took her talents to the stage winning two Tony Awards.

In 1990, Bacall was in Rochester, where she received the Eastman Award for distinguished contribution to the art of film. She was also in town in 2001 to speak at the Auditorium Theatre.

Lauren Bacall was 89.
