THE BIG SLEEP (Party at the Parkway)
Summoned by the dying General Sternwood, Philip Marlowe is asked to deal with several problems that are troubling his family. Marlowe finds that each problem centers about the disappearance of Sternwood's favoured employee who has left with a mobster's wife. Each of the problems becomes a cover for something else as Marlowe probes.
About Party at the Parkway:
This showing is part of "Party at the Parkway". Party at the Parkway is a patron planned event where we celebrate one of our patrons (or a group of patrons), replete with a cake and singing, and we open it up to the public. So even if you don't know anything about the group, consider coming out to celebrate. The party will start sometime in the 9 o'clock hour, give or take.
Here's what the organizer of this event has to say:
This film is required for my Humanities class at Berkeley City College. I figured this would be a fun way to complete the required screening.
