Lauren Bacall was banned from marrying second husband Jason Robards in Austria 1960, because she didn't have a death certificate for her first husband Humphrey Bogart.

Bacall tried to marry Robards in Vienna, just three years after she was widowed by Bogart - but she couldn't prove the screen legend had died.

The actress - who eventually married Robards a year later (61) - says, "I said, 'You mean to say you don't know Humphrey Bogart is dead?'"
