The Big Sleep

Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall in 35mm! Howard Hawks’ atmospheric mystery masterpiece casts the iconic Bogart as Raymond Chandler’s legendary gumshoe Philip Marlowe, the coolest private dick ever on screen and always ready with a clever comeback. Tasked with solving a new case, he’ll soon find himself up against deception, blackmail and murder… as well as the divorced daughter (Bacall) of the man who hired him. Featuring a legendary screenplay by William Faulkner, Leigh Brackett & Jules Furthman, The Big Sleep remains a towering film noir triumph fueled by the incendiary chemistry between its leads.

“It is one of the great film noirs, a black-and-white symphony that exactly reproduces Chandler’s ability, on the page, to find a tone of voice that keeps its distance, and yet is wry and humorous and cares” – Roger Ebert
