Classic Film: "The Big Sleep"
(1946, 114 minutes, Black and White) Directed by Howard Hawks
A dangerous blackmailer has targeted the Sternwoods, a wealthy family once tucked away in the safety of their Los Angeles mansion. But while private eye Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) works on the case, he ends up falling for the clan's fiery daughter (Lauren Bacall). Crackling dialogue and the perfect pairing for Bogart and Bacall make this adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s novel a timeless classic.
