Cult Movie Night: The Big Sleep/The Maltese Falcon

The third Friday of the month is Cult Movie Night at Castle Blackmoor. In March, it's Bogie Fever, with two film noir classics starring Humphrey Bogart. The first film is The Big Sleep (1946). Author Raymond Chandler once said even he was confused by the twisting, turning plot of The Big Sleep. But even beyond the maze-like plot in this 1946 mystery are the performances by Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Undoubtedly one of the best American film noir movies ever made.

People who want to stay late will see The Maltese Falcon (1941). Five years before playing detective Philip Marlowe in The Big Sleep, Bogart was on the case as Sam Spade in one of the definitive American film noir pictures, The Maltese Falcon. Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet are perfect as the unusual thieves after the mysterious statue.

Ice water and popcorn will be provided! If you want anything else, you'll need to bring it.


About me:

I am a huge fan of old movies, classic movies, monster movies, cult movies, and bad movies. I'm also a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and related endeavors like Film Crew, RiffTrax, and Cinematic Titanic.

    Loved both of these films, but while I know "The Maltese Falcon" won an Oscar, "The Big Sleep" was the superior film. I think it was Ms. Bacall, and Mr. Bogart was no slouch either. ;)

    Showing The Big Sleep first was a good decision, but I enjoyed both. I'm glad that the people who could make it made it. :)

    I had no idea the Paramount was showing Casablanca when I picked these. COINCIDENCE?
