Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

USA I 114 mins I U Director: Howard Hawks Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, John Ridgely Raymond Chandler’s hardboiled crime novel provided the seed for a film noir classic, as private detective Philip Marlowe (Bogart) gets deeply entangled in both a murder mystery and the arms of a femme fatale (Bacall). The dialogue is razor-edge smart, the photography distinctively moody and the stars – soon to be married – display a tangible chemistry when on-screen together. Following the screening Craig Russell, best-selling Fife-born author of Random, Witness The Dead and The Last Refuge, talks about the film with Alan Morrison.
