Howard Hawks’ perverse adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s novel stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in a detective story so convoluted that even Chandler couldn’t figure it out. With dialogue like this, you won’t care about the plot either. In 35mm.

ABOUT THIS SERIES

The people have spoken, and have told us they want more Film Noir. So we return with a selection of the most important and best of these dark stories of tough guys and femmes fatale, of rainy streets and very, very bad life choices. The first screening of each will be preceded by an informative introduction by AFS Lead Programmer Lars Nilsen.
