"You know how to get into a car, don't you, Steve? You just step off the curb, and go." 83-year-old Lauren Bacall (formerly Betty Joan Perske) was just 19 when she whispered words like that to her late husband, Humphrey Bogart, in her 1944 film debut as Slim in, "To Have and Have Not."

Miss Bacall was at Mr. Chow last night -- signing autographs and posing for paparazzi -- some of whom rarely see a star of her magnitude. Bacall chastised an autograph seeker who got to close to her famous visage, saying, "Don't stick things in my face!"
