BOGART ON THE BIG SCREEN

BOGART ON THE BIG SCREEN!

Five of Humphrey Bogart's Greatest Films on Our Big Screen. September 24-October 22. Every Satruday Morning at 11.

SAT SEPT 24:
THE MALTESE FALCON (1941) Dashiell Hammett’s classic detective tale winds up being one of the defining moments in the film noir movement. A film as shockingly modern as any from that era. Co-starring Mary Astor, Peter Lorre, Sidney Greenstreet. Written and directed by John Huston. B&W. 108 mins.

 

SAT OCT 1:
CASABLANCA (1942) Some call this wartime melodrama one of the century’s greatest (at least most popular) films ever made. And who are we to disagree?  Timelier than ever, it remains a clarion call to those who stand firm against those who would threaten our democracy. Co-starring Ingrid Bergman, Paul Henried, Conrad Veidt, Peter Lorre. Directed by Michael Curtiz. B&W. 102 mins.

 

SAT OCT 8:
THE BIG SLEEP (1946) Raymond Chandler’s great first novel featuring private eye Philip Marlowe becomes a Bogart performance as iconic as the character itself. Lauren Bacall, now married to the star, delivers more than her share of classic one-liners. Also in the cast, Martha Vickers, Dorothy Malone, Elisha Cook, Jr. Directed by Howard Hawks, B&W. 114 mins.  

 

SAT OCT 15:
THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948) With John Huston back in the director’s chair, Bogart gives us one of his most powerful performances in a towering tale of avarice and moral corruption. Co-starring Walter Huston, Tim Holt, Bruce Bennett. B&W. 124 mins.

 

SAT OCT 22:
IN A LONELY PLACE (1950) Nicholas Ray directed this murder mystery (from a novel by Dorothy B. Hughes) but it also serves as a sardonic examination of the worst components of the Hollywood myth. Co-starring Gloria Grahame, Frank Lovejoy, Jeff Donnell, Art Smith. B&W. 91 mins.
