Lizabeth Scott: A Lauren Bacall "Type"?

Recommended Posts

Well, in Martha Ivers, Stanwyck wasn't taking laxatives, she was giving 'em! And of course even though Scott had many far better roles in the course of her career, nobody would ever compare her to the greatest actress in history, Barbara Stanwyck.

I think Lizabeth Scott was hired by Paramount as a threat to Veronica Lake. Lauren Bacall was made to look her her in To Have and Have Not and she also reminded me of Ann Sheridan in Torrid Zone.

I'm probably in the minority, but I think I prefer Scott to Bacall. LS had acting limitations, sure, but she was a stranger actress than Bacall-- more fragile, dark in some way.


I definitely recommend Pitfall and Too Late for Tears. Lizabeth really shined in those films.
