Directed by Howard Hawks. Bogart plays Philip Marlowe in this celebrated (if baffling) mystery-thriller in which Raymond Chandler’s iconic private eye becomes enmeshed with two sisters from a fabulously wealthy family. NOTE: We will present the pre-release 1945 version of The Big Sleep, 2 minutes longer and slightly different from the 1946 release. (USA, 1945, b&w, 35mm, 116 min.)
