Peres describes his first meeting with Bacall here (free registration).
And if you would like to see Lauren Bacall saying that famous line to Humphrey Bogart, click here.
To Have and Have Not was Lauren Bacall's first film and it was there that she met and fell in love with Humphrey Bogart. But the film and her love for Bogart and the famous line might not have happened at all had Howard Hawks, the director and producer of the film, who was notoriously antisemitic, realised that Bacall was Jewish.
For that matter Shimon Peres may never have become president of Israel, nor lived very long at all, had he stayed in his native Poland where those of his family who remained perished in the Holocaust, some being burnt alive in their local synagogue.
And this is Shimon Peres doing a little whistling of his own, wondering why those people who demonstrate against Israel over Gaza could not be bothered to demonstrate against Hamas when it first began firing rockets at Israel.
