NOIR CITY X: THE GLASS KEY / THE MALTESE FALCON
The price of admission gets you in for the double bill.
THE GLASS KEY
(1942, Paramount/Universal, 85 min.)
Alan Ladd and Veronica Lake add glamorous sex appeal to Hammett's gritty and influential behind-the-scenes tale of the dirty work that goes on in big-city politics. Director Stuart Heisler is at his rapid-fire best, eliciting terrific support from dashing Brian Donlevy and thuggish William Bendix. Screenplay by Jonathan Latimer, from the novel by Dashiell Hammett.
THE MALTESE FALCON
(1941, Warner Bros. 100 min.)
NOIR CITY's 10th Anniversary celebration closes in the proper and righteous way: with an encore screening of the definitive film version of the most influential work of crime fiction ever written . . . "The stuff that dreams (and a million imitations) are made of." With legendary performances from Bogart, Mary Astor, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and S.F.'s own Elisha Cook Jr. Written and directed by John Huston, from the novel by Dashiell Hammett. Perhaps your last chance to see it in glorious 35-mm on a massive movie screen!
