One of Bacall’s films, the 1988 adaptation of Agatha Christie’s crime novel Appointment with Death, airs this afternoon on Channel 5.

Although Bacall and Bogart’s relationship was relatively short – he died in 1957, 12 years after their marriage – it was one that was destined to be.

Less than a year after they met, they tied the knot after marrying at the country home of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Bromfield.

The two enjoyed hugely successful careers alongside their whirlwind marriage, starring in some of the best films ever made in Hollywood.

One of Bacall’s films, the 1988 adaptation of Agatha Christie’s crime novel Appointment with Death, airs this afternoon on Channel 5.

Although Bacall and Humphrey’s relationship was relatively short – he died in 1957, 12 years after they were married – it was one that was destined to be.

A few weeks after filming “To Have and Have Not,” the couple kissed offscreen and Bogart asked for Bacall’s phone number.

Bogart was married at the time and tried to make his marriage work alongside the affair, before divorcing his wife in 1945 to marry Bacall 11 days later.

Bacall’s memoir was serialized in the Daily Mail after his death in 2014 and included passages about his tumultuous relationship.

She recalled a furious argument on their second Christmas together and wrote: “Bogie gave me a big box and I gasped when I tore it – it was a mink coat, from the high end store. Bergdorf Goodman range, and embroidered with my initials on the lining.This coat was a beauty.

“I threw my arms around him and swore I liked the coat, but he didn’t. It was touch and go for a while from there.

Bacall and Bogart made four films together before she stepped back to care for their growing family after the birth of their son Stephen, in 1949, and daughter Leslie, in 1952.

She revealed that the news of her first pregnancy caused a major argument between her and Bogart.

She said: “The day I told him I was pregnant we had the biggest screaming match of our lives.

“It hadn’t occurred to me that at 48 and childless, he wasn’t ready to be a father. He kept yelling that he didn’t marry me just to get lost with a baby.

“The next day he wrote me a long, contrite letter. He was afraid, he said, of being a bad father.

“But he knew how much I wanted a child, and he promised he would get used to the idea of ​​being called a dad.”

Stephen was named after Bogart’s character in “To Have and Have Not”.

Their fairy tale came to an abrupt end in January 1957 when Bogart died. He had been diagnosed with esophageal cancer the previous year, leaving Bacall a widower at just 32 years old.

Bacall had a relationship with Frank Sinatra after Bogart’s death and wrote in his autobiography that he abruptly ended the relationship after becoming angry that his marriage proposal leaked to the press.

She then met Hollywood star Jason Robards and married him in July 1961, but the couple divorced in 1969.

Bacall did not remarry and died in 2014 following a stroke.

Rendezvous with Death airs at 3:05 p.m. on Channel 5.
