See Photos From Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall’s Wedding Day

Revisiting the day the pair tied the knot, on what would have been their 70th anniversary

Humphrey Bogart met Lauren Bacall while filming To Have and Have Not, a 1944 film loosely adapted from the eponymous Ernest Hemingway novel. The two began an affair; Bogart was still married to Mayo Methot, his third wife, at the time. By February of 1945, Bogart had called off his marriage and was preparing to wed Bacall—which he did just a few months later, on May 21, 1945. Following the fête, LIFE announced their union as follows:

Actress Lauren Bacall (“The Look”), born 20 years ago as Betty Joan Perske, was married last week to Actor Humphrey Bogart (“The Leer”), 46, in the hallway of Novelist Louis Bromfield’s 20-room farmhouse near Mansfield, Ohio. It was her first marriage, Bogart’s fourth. The ceremony was performed by Municipal Judge H.H. Shettler who read a service which he said contained a little of everything. Before taking the vows, Bogart drank a Martini, muttered, ‘Oh, baby,’ to his bride. After the ceremony he kissed his bride and she gasped, “Oh, goody!” Deeply sun-tanned, she was wearing a doeskin beige dress. Seven sheriffs kept the crowds away.

“Oh, baby” and “oh, goody” would remain married until his death from cancer in 1957.

Maggie Gyllenhaal Told 37 Is Too Old To Play the Lover of a 55-Year-Old Man

"It made me feel bad, and then it made feel angry, and then it made me laugh"

Maggie Gyllenhaal recently revealed that she was turned down for a role in a movie because she, 37, was too old to play the love interest of a 55-year-old man.

“There are things that are really disappointing about being an actress in Hollywood that surprise me all the time,” she told The Wrap. “I’m 37 and I was told recently I was too old to play the lover of a man who was 55. It was astonishing to me. It made me feel bad, and then it made feel angry, and then it made me laugh.”

Gyllenhaal wouldn’t say what the movie was, but she did acknowledge that despite the setback and sexism in the industry, she’s still optimistic about female roles in Hollywood. “A lot of actresses are doing incredible work right now, playing real women, complicated women. I don’t feel despairing at all. And I’m more looking with hope for something fascinating.”

Gyllenhaal won a Golden Globe in January for her part in The Honourable Woman.

How Apple Influenced the New ‘Star Wars’ Films


Galactic fashion features a dash of Cupertino

Apple seems to have had a hand in dressing the Galactic Empire—at least from a design perspective.

We’re not talking Levi 501s and black mock turtlenecks, as was the signature style of late Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Rather, Star Wars costume designer, Michael Kaplan, tells Vanity Fair in a Q&A that he channeled the tech giant’s minimalist taste in creating the uniforms worn by characters in the next installment of the blockbuster series.

Kaplan cites a number of inspirations ranging from the Third Reich to the sci-fi classic Blade Runner to Sam Spade, the fictional detective in The Maltese Falcon. But he also gives a nod to Apple. Here’s the relevant bit:

Q. Did you invent some kind of fashion back-story in your head to explain how the look of this galaxy might have evolved?

Maybe subconsciously, but with the stormtroopers it was more of a simplification, almost like, “What would Apple do?” J.J. wanted them to look like stormtroopers at a glance but also be different enough to kind of wow people and get them excited about the new design.

That’s right, stormtroopers.

Earlier this year, a New Yorker profile of Apple’s chief designer Jony Ive mentioned that he had some minor input on the look of a new lightsaber. “Ive once sat next to J. J. Abrams at a boozy dinner party in New York, and made what Abrams recalled as ‘very specific’ suggestions about the design of lightsabres,” journalist Ian Parker writes.

Later, Parker reports that Ive backed off from claiming he had any substantial impact—especially on the subject of the weapon’s contentious cross-guard, the part just above the handle for protecting the hand.

I asked Ive about his contribution. “It was just a conversation,” he said, then explained that, although he’d said nothing about cross guards, he had made a case for unevenness: “I thought it would be interesting if it were less precise, and just a little bit more spitty.” A redesigned weapon could be “more analog and more primitive, and I think, in that way, somehow more ominous.”

It’s worth noting that the influences between Apple and Disney work both ways. One of the faces on the new Apple Watch features Mickey Mouse, after all.

It’s unclear what Apple CEO Tim Cook thinks about his company inspiring the stormtrooper uniforms. For more on the shared influences between Apple and Disney, read Fortune senior writer Michal Lev-Ram’s recent cover story in the magazine: “Disney CEO Bob Iger’s Empire of Tech”.

For everyone else, here’s a gif from Apple’s notorious 1984-style commercial that hints at the Empire’s boys in white.

Top 10 Things That Got Great Free Publicity from David Letterman

Everett Collection

He's done quite a few Top Ten lists. So we've done one in his honor.

With David Letterman’s final show set to air this week, we thought it would be appropriate to celebrate an oddball assortment of products, places, businesses, and brands that somehow benefited from their association with Letterman and his program—even when Dave was making fun of them.

10. Alka-Seltzer
In one classic bit from 1984, Dave put on a tank with compressed air and a suit covered in 3,400 Alka-Seltzer tablets. He was then hoisted into the air and dipped head-deep into a glass enclosure filled with water, which bubbled and fizzed excitedly. It was pure stupidity—and made for great, memorable TV. Letterman has also done silly tricks wearing suits covered in sponges and Velcro. He frequently warned the audience, “Don’t try this at home.”

9. Ham, Meats in General
The #1 item on David Letterman’s very first Top Ten List—”Top Ten Words That Almost Rhyme With ‘Peas,'” recorded in 1985—was “Meats.” It’s fitting because Letterman shows seem to have quite the love affair with meat, ham in particular. Dave has worn a meat helmet to entice a hawk into landing on his head, and there were meat-themed Top Ten lists and a running “Know Your Cuts of Meat” segment on the show. Canned hams were often awarded to audience members as prizes of quizzes and other contests.

8. Cabin Boy
Though some insist it’s a cult classic, the 1994 film Cabin Boy received horrible reviews and was a flop at the box office. It would have likely been forgotten entirely were it not for a short cameo by David Letterman, who played the “Old Salt in the Fishing Village” and tried to sell a monkey to the title character, played by longstanding Letterman pal, writer and actor Chris Elliott. Most memorably, Letterman mocked his performance in a funny bit from the 1995 Oscars, which he hosted.

7. Tahlequah, Oklahoma
It was big news in 1992 when the Letterman show relocated its home office way from Lebanon, Pa., to Tahlequah. The town put up a highway billboard and hosted a “Stupid Parade” in celebration. It mattered little that there is no Letterman home office outside of its New York City studio. Every city that’s served as the fictional home office—there have been 11 in total, including Milwaukee; Scottsdale; Oneonta, N.Y.; and current home office site Wahoo, Nebraska—has embraced the totally made-up honor.

6. Hello Deli
Tourists from all over know Manhattan’s Hello Deli and owner Rupert Jee from their regular appearances on the Letterman show, which is taped next door. Customers can also order sandwiches like the “Alan Kalter” (the Late Show’s announcer), the “Late Show Research,” and simply the “Letterman.” Here is Rupert Jee singing “Let It Go” from Frozen, the day after it won the Academy Award for Best Original Song:

5. Delaware
If there’s no such thing as bad publicity, then Delaware should be grateful for all the attention paid to it by David Letterman over the years. The state has served as a go-to punchline, featured in a mocking segment called “Get to Know Delaware” and on multiple Top Ten lists. Sample, from a Top Ten list of questions from the U.S. Citizenship Exam: “If all the good states are full, would you be willing to live in Delaware?”

4. Best Bagger Championship
Year after year, the winner of the National Grocery Association’s Best Bagger Championship won a $10,000 check plus, in all likelihood, the opportunity to compete in a grocery bagging challenge against David Letterman on his show. Here’s the 2015 champ’s appearance:

3. Indianapolis 500
OK, so this is one of the most famous Formula One auto races on the planet. So it isn’t exactly hurting for publicity. Still, the race, and Formula One racing in general, have benefited from an extra image boost thanks to the longstanding association with Indianapolis native Letterman, who was a goofball reporter at the Indy 500 in 1971 when he was just 24 years old and who has been a part owner of a race team for a decade. Countless racecar drivers have been on Letterman’s shows over the years as well.

2. Ball State University
A self-professed slacker as a student, Letterman has periodically plugged his Muncie, Ind., alma mater, Ball State, where a building is now named after the talk show host. Letterman credits one of his professors, Darren Wible, with changing his life and setting him on the path to great success. Letterman even managed to bring Oprah Winfrey to the Ball State campus for an interview/lecture in front an audience that lasted nearly two hours. Here is Letterman praising one of his alma mater’s recent successes:

1. Adidas
David Letterman will never be memorialized as a fashion icon. He may, however, be remembered as a guy who had quite a unique look. “His hair resembled an ill-fitting vintage leather motorcycle helmet. His front teeth had a massive gap that looked almost painted-on as a joke,” Conan O’Brien, another talk show host who doesn’t look the part of the traditional broadcaster, wrote recently for Entertainment Weekly. Perhaps most memorably, “He was wearing the requisite broadcaster’s tie, but khaki pants and Adidas sneakers.”

What Katharine Hepburn Wore When She Wasn’t Wearing Pants

The actress, who was born on May 12, 1907, had to play up the frills from time to time

The article of clothing with which Katharine Hepburn is most closely associated is trousers. The actress’ fondness for pants—before they were considered ladylike—was not only a fashion statement but, to many, a symbol of stubborn independence and a declaration of modernity.

But many of Hepburn’s roles—and her legacy as a four-time Oscar-winning actress is certainly more notable than that as fashion trendsetter—required the woman LIFE called a “lanky, coltish thoroughbred” to adhere to more feminine standards.

For her 1939 Broadway turn in one of her most famous roles, socialite Tracy Lord in The Philadelphia Story, Hepburn hung up the pants and went all in on frilliness. LIFE described the process of designing her wardrobe:

To make the role of Tracy Lord both credible and sympathetic, it was essential; that Katharine Hepburn be made to look irresistibly seductive every minute she was on the stage. Valentina, who dresses Lynn Fontanne and Katharine Cornell, was called upon to make the clothes. Her creations, designed to give soft, feminine allure to tall, angular Miss Hepburn (whose favorite outfit in real life is a man’s suit of clothes) are shown on this and the following page.

Those creations featured silk-crepe and mousseline, flowing gowns and girdles. The extra effort, from wardrobe to performances, paid off. After a string of Hollywood flops earned her the unwanted label “box office poison,” Hepburn acquired the rights to the play, sold them to MGM, starred in the 1940 movie adaptation and revived her onscreen career.

Jeffrey Bewkes, Time Warner

Pay — $32.9 million, 1 percent
Stock performance — ↑ 30 percent
2014 financials — Net income rose 4 percent to $3.8 billion on revenue that rose 3 percent to $27.4 billion thanks to strong performances at HBO and Warner Bros. Television.

Adam Levine Got Hit By a Sugar Bomb Outside the Jimmy Kimmel Live Studios

The singer was not injured

Maroon 5 front man and The Voice judge Adam Levine was the unfortunate target of a sugar bomb outside the Jimmy Kimmel Live studios in Hollywood, L.A. Wednesday night.

According to eyewitnesses, Levine and his band mates were leaving the studio when someone in the crowd hurled powdered sugar at him, coating his face and jacket, reports CNN.

“It looked like he wanted to fight the guy,” said Laura Tijerina, who was waiting for an autograph. “I think this guy had it planned. It was a brown bag with tape around it, which was weird. I just saw powder everywhere. It was just so quick.”

Levine, whose band has a song named Sugar, wasn’t hurt. The suspect, however, was reportedly tackled by security guards and arrested.

When the Three Stooges Got Their Big Silver Screen Break

On the anniversary of their big movie debut, a look back at the comedy trio through the LIFE archives

On May 5, 1934, the world met Moe, Larry and Curly for the first time on the silver screen. Although the Three Stooges had been performing in various configurations since the late 1920s, it wasn’t until the mid-1930s that they released their first film under that name. Titled Woman Haters, the 19-minute-long, rhyming, musical short had a comedic premise that likely wouldn’t fly in 2015 — it centers on a group of men united by their membership in the “Woman Haters Club” —but was enough to launch the Stooges’ prolific film career, the first of more than 200 movies they would make as a comedy trio.

By the time LIFE photographed the Stooges in 1959, they had been through still more reconfigurations — Curly suffered a stroke in 1946 and needed to be replaced — but their TV career was still ahead of them. The syndication of their dozens of comedy shorts for television helped the act regain popularity and grow its following, appealing to, among other demographics, young children. Accordingly, LIFE’s shoot included images of the men recording their first album, which featured kiddie tunes such as “Old McDonald” and “Three Little Fishes.” And all these years later, the sight of the three knuckleheads still elicits a hearty “Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk!” from the fans who loved their outrageous antics.

8 Lessons ‘Star Wars’ Taught Us About Money, for May the Fourth

In honor of May the Fourth (a.k.a. Star Wars Day), we are geeking out with a roundup of lessons that the "Star Wars" movies can teach about careers, investing, borrowing, being smart shoppers, and resisting the temptation of the Dark Side.

On Star Wars Day, let us be among the first to say, “May the Fourth be with you.” (Get it?) And let us put our Star Wars and personal finance nerd credentials on display by sharing some money lessons that can be gleaned from all the action and drama that unfolded a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

  • Negotiate for the Best Deal

    Lucasfilm Ltd.—courtesy Everett Collection STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE

    In “The Phantom Menace,” Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn is stuck on the planet Tatooine with a broken ship, and without the money (or “credits”) to get it repaired. He haggles adeptly with the junk dealer Watto over the terms of a wager that nets both the part necessary to fix the ship, as well as the release of the slave Anakin Skywalker, who grows up to become Darth Vader. Another example of good negotiating comes in “A New Hope,” when Anakin’s son Luke and his Uncle Owen insist on a new droid (R2D2) after one they’d just purchased breaks down.

  • Pay Off Your Debts

    Lucasfilm Ltd./courtesy Everett Collection STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE

    For most of the time moviegoers get to know Han Solo, he is haunted by a debt owed to the underworld boss Jabba the Hutt. Bounty hunters—the equivalent of debt collection agencies in the “Star Wars” universe—are dispatched to track down Solo, and eventually he winds up in the hands of Boba Fett. Solo is frozen in carbonite and carted off to Jabba the Hutt’s palace as a prize wall ornament. (Side note: It’s best to avoid becoming indebted to murderous crime lords in the first place.)

  • Make Your Boss Happy

    LucasFilm/20th Century Fox—The Kobal Collection RETURN OF THE JEDI

    Let’s hope your boss doesn’t react to disappointment like Darth Vader, who uses the Force to remotely choke an admiral to death after Rebel ships elude the Empire. “You have failed me for the last time,” Vader says as the man drops to the ground, and then promptly promotes another staffer into the position of command. (We’ve heard some variation of this scene takes place, with slightly less lethal results, in Wall Street offices on a regular basis.) The moral is: To keep your job—and to breathe easy, so to speak—always be mindful of avoiding missteps that could turn the boss into a vengeful tyrant.

    MORE: Why It Pays to Make Your Boss Your BFF

  • Work for Something Beyond Money & Power


    Most research indicates that once a person earns a decent salary ($75,000 in the U.S.), making more money does not increase happiness. In fact, some high-paying jobs tend to make people miserable. The happiest employees are instead those who are challenged and find their work fulfilling. That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re working for some great humanitarian cause. A 2015 survey named construction workers as the happiest category of employees, and that one’s satisfaction with colleagues and satisfaction with the nature of the work were most important in determining who is happy at work. It’s hard to think that money-driven bounty hunters like Boba Fett and Greedo were happy, nor that people working for the Empire felt good about their jobs. Look at what eventually happens to the power-hungry Emperor too.

  • The Weak-Minded Are Easily Tricked

    Lucasfilm Ltd.—courtesy Everett Collection STAR WARS: EPISODE IV - A NEW HOPE

    Jedi mind tricks are used to persuade individuals to do what the Jedi wants—to stop a bar fight that’s about to happen, for example, or to overlook one’s duty to find two wanted droids. But these mind tricks only work on the weak-minded. So too do the mind tricks routinely practiced by marketers, advertisers, and sales people, who are in the business of persuading the masses into buying merchandise and adopting habits that typically benefit the seller more than the buyer. Be skeptical rather than weak-minded and easily persuaded. Don’t allow any advertisement, shameless marketing ploy, or car salesman to successfully play some “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for” trick on you.

  • Penny Pinching Can Lead to Your Doom

    The Empire seemed to spare no expense on the building of the Death Star, the moon-sized battle station powerful enough to destroy planets. Yet some genius overlooked the design flaw that allowed the Rebels to fly inside and blow the thing up. Surely the Empire could have spent a few more bucks—perhaps by scaling back slightly on the power of the super laser—and made the Death Star truly impenetrable. Likewise, if you’re buying a house, it’s unwise to pinch pennies by, say, skipping the home inspection or ignoring landscaping issues that will lead to water in the basement. Spending a bit more upfront on things like better-insulated windows and energy-efficient appliances and heating and cooling systems will save you money in the long run as well. Finally, don’t skimp on repairs and upkeep for big-ticket purchases like your home and car: Addressing minor problems as they arise will help you avoid cost explosions down the line.

  • Develop Good Mentor-Mentee Relationships

    Lucas Films/Mary Evans/Ronald Gr—Everett Collection

    The theme of teaching, learning, and mentorship runs throughout “Star Wars,” with Qui-Gon Jinn offering guidance and knowledge to his young Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi, Obi-Wan serving as mentor to both Anakin and Luke Skywalker, and Yoda passing along nuggets of wisdom for pretty much everybody. On the other hand, Darth Maul, Count Dooku (Darth Tyranus), and Darth Vader, who all head to the Dark Side and choose the evil Sith Lord Darth Sidious (a.k.a. Emperor Palpatine) as their mentor, don’t exactly live happily ever after.

  • Size Matters Not

    20th Century Fox—Courtesy Everett Collection STAR WARS: EPISODE III-REVENGE OF THE SITH

    Among other things, this bit of wisdom from Yoda applies to one’s career (“small” jobs and “small” companies can represent terrific opportunities) and the amount of money a young worker can allocate to start an investment portfolio. It may seem silly to begin investing when your expenses eat up all but perhaps $1,000 per year. But there are many wise moves to make with a spare $1,000, let alone $10,000, and no matter how much you start with, investing early on is proven to add up big time over the course of several decades. The goal is that some day your portfolio will contain buying power equivalent to Yoda’s grasp of the Force. Hopefully, this happens before “900 years old you reach.”

San Andreas Is Still Going to Be Released in May Despite the Nepal Earthquake

Warner Bros. says it will disseminate information about how people can donate to Nepal earthquake relief

Warner Bros. will stick to the original release date of May 29 for its earthquake blockbuster San Andreas despite the devastating tremblor in Nepal, Variety reports.

A studio spokesperson said Wednesday the company debated over moving the release date, but instead chose to alter promotional materials to include information about how people can donate to relief efforts in Nepal. They also accelerated an original public-service campaign that educates people on natural disaster safety and adjusted the messaging to encompass events in Nepal, Variety said.

The trailers and posters, however, will not be changed.

“We will continue to evaluate our worldwide marketing campaign to ensure that we are sensitive to those affected by this tragic event,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson told Variety.

The movie features Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson and Carla Gugino as an estranged couple who travels from Los Angeles to San Francisco to save their daughter after California’s San Andreas fault suffers a magnitude-9 earthquake. The trailer features scenes of Los Angeles skyscrapers tumbling and a massive tsunami bearing down on San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.

Nepalese police said Thursday morning the death toll from the magnitude-7.8 earthquake had topped 5,500 people across India, Bangladesh, China and Nepal, with an estimated 11,440 injured.
