(1946, directed by Howard Hawks, 114 mins., PG)
Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall light up the silver-screen. Notable gumshoe Philip Marlowe (Bogart) is hired by a wealthy socialite (Bacall) to investigate troubles involving her wild, young sister. William Faulkner’s screenplay became legendary for its complexity, but is nonetheless an electrifying and entertaining ride serving up snappy characters, an engaging atmosphere, and a fast-paced plot.
