Bacall successfully sustained her career for more than fifty years during which she gave memorable performances in a diverse range of films including Young Man With a Horn, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Cobweb, Designing Woman, Written on the Wind, and The Shootist.

It's based on the final 1988 novel by Glendon Swarthout, whose earlier 1975 story, The Shootist, became dying John Wayne's last movie.
Bacall's screen career would never hit the heights, though she was effective in "Designing Woman," "Harper" "Sex and the Single Girl," "Murder on the Orient Express" "The Shootist" and "The Fan."
