Share

January 17, 2013

Program Locations:

Epiphany Library

 

 

Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre

Turner/Warner Bros.; Directed by John Huston

Black and White; Not Rated; 101 minutes; 1941

 

John Huston sketches a dark, cynical world with painfully deep perception. Detective Sam Spade’s (Humphrey Bogart) search for his partner’s killer leads him to a group of determined individuals who want the jeweled falcon of Malta: Brigid O'Shaughnessey (Mary Astor), the beautiful femme fatale, cowardly Joel Cairo (Peter Lorre), and pompously inflated Casper Gutman (Sydney Greenstreet).
