35mm Screening

(1946, Howard Hawks) Hired by a hothouse-ensconced retired general to investigate his nympho daughter’s gambling debts, Humphrey Bogart, as Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe, finds the dames—including a very young Dorothy Malone as the bookseller – keep throwing themselves at him even as corpses keep dropping, while he and Lauren Bacall take time for a memorable double entendre conversation about race horses. Co-scripted by William Faulkner. 35mm. Approx. 100 min.
