Actress Lauren Bacall, who paired with spouse Humphrey Bogart in films including 'The Big Sleep' and 'Key Largo', has died at the age of 89 following a stroke, according to her family's estate.

Bacall was born Betty Joan Perske in the Bronx in 1924 — the daughter of a Romanian Jewish immigrant mother and a New Jersey-born father who was the son of Polish immigrants. Bacall was first cousin to Israeli statesman Shimon Peres.

Her international fame began in 1944 with her first film, "To Have and Have Not," which she made with future husband Humphrey Bogart.

They married in 1945, had two children and went on to make more films together, including "The Big Sleep" (1946), "Dark Passage" (1947) and "Key Largo" (1948).

Bacall was married to Bogart until his death in 1957, and later was married to actor Jason Robards from 1961 to 1969. She had two children with Bogart and one with Robards.
