That cover was what caught the attention of Slim Hawks, gorgeous elegant wife of director Howard Hawks, out in Hollywood. Slim Hawks said, “You need to look at this girl.” She knew the “type” of girl Howard liked, and that sullen-eyed red-lipped girl was it. 

Later Lauren Bacall wrote:

‘One day a couple of weeks before the picture was to start, I was about to walk into Howard’s office when Humphrey Bogart came walking out. He said, “I just saw your test. We’ll have a lot of fun together.” Howard told me Bogart had truly liked the test and would be very helpful to me.’
