The Long Goodbye

7 January 2016 10:00 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Vilmos Zsigmond won the National Society of Film Critics' award for best cinematography on this, his third pairing with director Robert AltmanAltman and Leigh Brackett, cowriter of the screenplay for The Big Sleep, turn Raymond Chandler’s La gumshoe into a figure of ’70s angst in what many consider the director’s masterpiece and Elliott Gould’s finest hour.

Bogie and Bacall – The Big Sleep Saturday Morning at The Hi-Pointe

7 January 2016 7:45 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“She tried to sit in my lap while I was standing up!”

The Big Sleep screens this Saturday morning, January 9th at The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117) as part of their Classic Film Series.

Director Howard HawksThe Big Sleep (1946) is one of the best Humphrey Bogart movies, one with more twists and turns than a pretzel factory. As Philip Marlowe, Bogie gives one of his best performances as the honest Private Eye up against the corruption and deceit of the Sternwood family and their “acquaintances”. Lauren Bacall is charming and sexy as Vivian, Bogies main love interest. But whose side is she on? Martha Vickers effectively plays Bacall’s younger spoiled sister whom Marlowe frequently encounters in his quest for the truth.

John Ridgely appears as Eddie Mars the chief villain of the piece. Veterans Elisha Cook Jr. (Harry Jones), Regis Toomey (Bernie) and Louis Jean Heydt »
