Hollywood actress Lauren Bacall talks about overcoming a case of nervous shakes on the set of her first big movie.

In the process of discovering that tilting her head 'locked' it in position, and prevented it shaking, she unknowingly created a much imitated iconic 'look'.

Bacall remembers how falling in love with Humphrey Bogart (who she calls Bogey) on the set of To Have and Have Not (Howard Hawks, USA, 1944), took them both by surprise.

She is in Sydney to promote her autobiography Lauren Bacall: By Myself (1978).
