Let me help you out bro.
I think the point is that it is better to age gracefully and naturally than it is to fight age and end up looking like a mannequin.

I don’t know either but the pic in the upper right is making me sick.
Aging naturally versus formaldehyde?
That too, Brad.

Bacall wins in my book.
Livin on Winchell-Mahoney Time, Dude, that’s one of the most awesome women that has ever lived. Please do some home work.
Seen many cars with a sweet engine, but the tranny sucks!
Botox and plastic surgery are skin deep?
no offense intended. Bad picture though.
The one in the lower right made jokes about John Lennon right after he was shot. I know who the bitch is.
Buck Ofama: That’s one of those tune that you heard back in the day and it made your ear perk up and sent a shiver down your spine. You just can’t out run it.
Livin on Winchell-Mahoney Time:
The top one is total class, the one on the bottom, verdicts still out.
Dunk This !
Dammit…that’s enough to knock a guy off his nipple.
Plus, I’m going to have nightmares now.
I know it all too well, my friend. I turned 60 years old the other day. I remember when I thought forty was old.
you need an earlier picture of Joan Rivers. the one on the left, she’s already had work. Are they the same age in the “after” shots? I’ll take the Joan Rivers path.
Buck Ofama: Right behind you my friend, still trying to stay bad.
Look at the eyes; they tell the tale. One loved and was loved by Bogart….
I ain’t no spring chicken either, but you’re only as old as you feel. I feel great! Hope you guys do too.
The eyes are the same.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? –Satchel Paige
The eyes are not the same. Bacall’s are confident and wise, Rivers are indecisive and lack confidence. Bacall’s been there done that and honest.
plastic surgery might be worth considering?
Just to be clear, when I said I know who the bitch is, I was talking about Rivers. Should have worded that differently.
I’ve seen all of Lauren Bacall’s movies and Bogie’s too. Never watched Joan for more than two seconds.
Did my homework long ago.
Livin on Winchell-Mahoney Time: Ease up, were good. Didn’t mean to offend. Like your posts.
Upholstering your face in Naugahyde doesn’t make you look younger. And Lauren Bacall’s nose is still better looking than Joan River’s.
Bacall = staunch liberal Democrat
Rivers = Republican
Just tossing that out there.
Didn’t know that CrustyB.
I still can’t stand Rivers and I can’t believe that she wouldn’t vote for 0bamanation.
I know nothing of those women, but I’d trust the green-eyed old one on the top right with my gold.
Crusty: A democrat in the 60s is a Tea Party member in the 2000.
Ann, I always assumed you admired her for her beauty. It is, after all, only skin deep.
True, but as recently as a 2005 interview with Larry King she described herself as “anti-Republican… A liberal. The L-word.” She went on to say that “being a liberal is the best thing on earth you can be. You are welcoming to everyone when you’re a liberal. You do not have a small mind.”
CrustyB: Shit! I guess Ann and I are drinking tonight (oops I already started). I still love that women.
Rivers not only joked about John Lennon’s death, she showed the same sick disrespect for Princess Diana and Whitney Houston.
?? Maybe I do need to do some homework ?
I picked a bad week to quit Thunderbird and Lemon juice.
I prefer Joan. Easier on the eye. Still damned beautiful even though its from botox and surgery.
Bacall is 88. Rivers is 9 years younger. I think graceful is better than Botox.

I think your point is that you will always be single as long as you fear old age. Love means never having to worry what you look like when you’re in your eighties.
the point I see is that nothing last’s
By the time she was 30, Bacall’s looks were pretty much gone. Too much booze and cigarettes. I can see why Bogie went apeshit over her when she was 18, though.
Rivers is just tacky. Makes her living by being brassy, big mouthed and obnoxious, kinda like your Aunt Sadie at your Bar Mitzvah.
Boobie the Rocket Dog
Bogart was a hard-line leftist, too.

I dunno, Joan looks pretty good for a corpse.

Ok, so the point is – there is no point.
I think this is how our usurper-in-chief got elected in 2008. People saw in him what they wanted to see, just as peole here are reading into these two contrasting actresses and coming to their own conclusions about what the point is.
Nothing wrong with being 88 years old. But why would you want a close up of your face at that age?
Based on the eyes,
Bacall’s eyes are dead, cold, joyless and empty, probably from years of embracing leftist views.
The eyes they say, are the windows to the soul. I see an empty soul in hers.
Rivers, has life in hers.
Those that submit to plastics all eventually end up looking like Rivers….. and join “The Sisterhood of the Duckface Pre-Cadavers”….not that there’s anything wrong with that if that’s what you’re going for. Bacall is pure aged class, comfortable in her own weathered skin. Kudos to her for not following the Hollyweird crowd to the surgeons office.
Laugh at your own risk, one day time and disease will humble you, too.
What does Hillary Clinton have to do with those other broads?
All I know is that Bacall was an absolute gorgeous woman in her day and I will never forget…
“All you have to do is whistle. You know how to whistle, don’t you Steve?
You just put your lips together and blow.”
Oh my God! I almost passed out when I saw that scene for the first time!
Frankly, both of them have gone farther than necessary. If Bacall had stopped smoking and drinking and taken a little better care of herself, she probably wouldn’t look quite that bad. And the over applied makeup doesn’t help either.
As for Joan, she just took it too far. But I think once you start on that realigning of the face, you have to keep on or it really makes you look horrible. Pity for both of them. It isn’t fun for women when they begin aging. Best to just stay away from the sun and cameras.

Wisdom is not an acceptable tradeoff to the effects of aging?
Trade on your looks in youth and you’ll have no currency as you age.
Lots of good lines, here.
I don’t find the botox route an attractive one, but people make choices. Sneer if you will…
I like *both* Joan Rivers and Lauren Bacall.

PS: One of these decades, I might take up smoking again. Or, maybe, get one of those electronic cigs (sans nicotine), for the effect of the water vapor wafting across the room…. Like long leather gloves and seamed stockings, it’s a look. ….smile…. Bacall did it well.

Beauty [is] fleeting, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised …
Ms. B, i’d bet pretty heavily that Ms. Bacall gulped quite a few whiskeys and smoked out a few hundred pounds of cigarettes.
