The day Lauren Bacall let rip at Australian reporters

Australian reporters felt the wrath of Bacall when she sat down for a press conference in Brisbane in 1986 during her stage production tour of Tennessee Williams’ Sweet Bird of Youth.
Bacall was upset by a newspaper report the tour was not a financial success.
“What is the point of knocking all the time?” she asked the reporters.
“Don’t you have anything constructive to say?
“I don’t understand it.
“You try to knock Tennessee Williams.
“You try to knock the play, say that we’re not doing business here which is an out-and-out lie made up by whoever wrote that piece in whatever the paper is.
“It seems to me as a visitor the point of it is ‘Don’t come back to Australia’.
“That’s the message I’m getting.”
Asked if she would be glad to leave Australia she laughed: “If that attitude continues, I’ll say.”
