The Swans of Society: Slim Keith
Jul 13, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
''I had been married to the film director Howard Hawks; I had been married to the great literary agent and impresario Leland Hayward; I was now, thanks to my marriage to Sir Kenneth Keith, bearing a title, the Lady Keith. Along the way, I had 'discovered' Lauren Bacall, and Howard Hawks had used my image to create hers in To Have and Have Not. I had made the best-dressed list innumerable times, I had shot with Hemingway, traveled with Capote, and been wooed by Gable.'' Meet Slim Keith.
