The Big Sleep screening (2018-Aug-10 @ 7:30 p.m.)
Friday, August 10 @ 19:30–22:02
The Dryden will screen The Big Sleep (Howard Hawks, U.S. 1946, 114 min., 35mm) as part of the War, Myth, Desire series.
The second collaboration between Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall was this adaptation of Raymond Chandler's legendary detective novel with Bogie as Philip Marlowe. Forget the convoluted plot (co-scripted by William Faulkner)—just revel in the thick film noir atmosphere and watch the sexy sparks fly between the two leads. Held back by Warner Bros. until 1946 when the film was recut, this restored 1945 version will be followed by a detailed documentary (38 min.) about the two versions.
