In pictures: Lauren Bacall

US actress Lauren Bacall, one of the most famous actresses in post-war cinema, has died at the age of 89.

Born in 1924 in New York, Lauren Bacall became one of Hollywood's biggest stars, known for her husky voice and beauty.
She made her film debut at the age of 19 with a memorable performance in To Have and Have Not, opposite actor Humphrey Bogart.
Bacall and Bogart married the following year, and continued their on-screen partnership in Key Largo, The Big Sleep and Dark Passage. They were married until Bogart's death in 1957.
Her characters were often femmes fatales - strong, determined and intelligent, but also erotic.
Bacall starred with Marilyn Monroe (right) in How to Marry a Millionaire in 1953.
Her acting career spanned several decades. In 1993, she acted in BBC production A Foreign Field, about WW2 veterans returning to revisit the battlefields of Normandy.
Her performance in The Mirror Has Two Faces, alongside Jeff Bridges (left) and Barbra Streisand, earned her an Oscar nomination in 1997.
Bacall presented an Academy Award at the Oscars in 2006, and she was awarded an honorary Oscar in 2009 for "her central place in the golden age of motion pictures".
