Family, friends remember Lauren Bacall at private funeral

New York: Close friends and family attended an intimate funeral of Hollywood beauty Lauren Bacall.

The actress, known for her distinctive husky voice and sultry looks, died last week from a massive stroke. She was 89.

She was remembered at a small funeral on August 19 in Manhattan, reported the New York Post.

Only 50 people, including Bacall`s close friends Anjelica Huston and Michael Douglas, apparently attended the closed-casket event which took place at the Frank E Campbell Funeral Home.

The mourners spent time looking at Bacall`s hundreds of old photos, including many glamorous ones of herself, and posters from her movie career around her magnificent apartment.
