The Golden Era Hollywood star Lauren Bacall passed away this week at the age of 89. Her career spanned seven decades with defining roles like Vivian Rutledge in The Big Sleep, working alongside legends like Humphrey Bogart, James Stewart, and Henry Fonda.
Thanks to the powers of the Internet, we’re able to commemorate her lesser known work as spokesperson for High Point decaf flavor crystals. The product, distributed by Folgers, was released in the early 80s to unseat Sanka. It was discontinued in 1993. Bacall’s gravitas and class make what many would deem a lesser product rise to her level of greatness. It’s magic to watch her deliver these lines.

1. “Flavor that’s full of life! I like that.”
Lauren Bacall is now with the ages. The class and sass she brought to all her roles, big and small, made her a true treasure.
