Lauren Bacall Provided for Beloved Pet in Her Will

1940s Lauren BacallFilm Star Lauren Bacall died at age 89, leaving $26.6 million to her three children, minus $10,000. The set aside funds are for the care of her dog Sophie. Though the distributions were made public since they were through her will, Bacall made clear in the document that she wants her diary and personal letters kept private.

See, Lauren Bacall’s Pooch to Inherit 10,000 Dollars From Her Fortune, The Times of India, Aug. 23, 2014.
