As news of the death of actress Lauren Bacall spread fans erected a memorial outside her Manhattan home. The small tribute at the side entrance to The Dakota apartment building included a bouquet of flowers and six roses. Bacall, the sultry actress with the husky voice who captured Humphrey Bogart's heart both on and off the screen, died on August 12 at the age of 89. Near her home, people remembered the acting legend. SOUNDBITE: Jeff, tourist, saying (English): "I loved her voice. She had a wonderful voice. It was that really kind of low, kind of sexy voice. She seemed like somebody who was a match for Humphrey Bogart. I think that they were both pretty strong personalities at the time. And a beautiful woman and a great actress." Joe Pasternack lived near The Dakota and saw Bacall on the street. SOUNDBITE: Joe Pasternack, New York resident, saying (English): "I only ran into her once. She had a little poodle and she was nice. But you could see that she didn't want to have a conversation. So I said, 'Hello'. She said, 'Hello' and I kept on going." During her career, she won a Golden Globe for her role in "The Mirror Has Two Faces." In 2009, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded her an honorary Oscar.
