Lauren Bacall was only 19 years old when she sang 'How Little We Know' in her debut film with Humphrey Bogart, 'To Have And Have Not'. When she stood by the piano and started to sing, her husky voice became a lot deeper and her imposing elegant looks with famous sultry eyes lured audiences. Bacall undeniably carried off the scene.
I also love Jeanne Moreau's 'Le Tourbillon' from François Truffaut's Jules et Jim which made Moreau an International star. Here are some of my favourite singing actresses...
To Have And Have Not (1944) : Lauren Bacall 'How Little We Know'
Made In U.S.A. (1966) : Marianne Faithfull 'As Tears Go By'
Jules et Jim (1962) : Jeanne Moreau 'Le Tourbillon'
Sabrina (1954) : Audrey Hepburn 'La vie en rose'
The Big Sleep (1946) : Lauren Bacall 'And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine'
Une Femme Est Une Femme (1961) : Anna Karina 'Je suis très belle'
