Fourth Friday Flix: The Maltese Falcon

When: Fri., May 26, 7:30 p.m. 2017

"The stuff that dreams are made of." Based on the novel by private detective-turned-writer Dashiell Hammett, John Huston's directorial debut not only launched the high-profile careers of Huston and star Humphrey Bogart, but is widely considered one of the first examples of film noir. Bogart plays Sam Spade, a private eye who meets the enigmatic femme fatale Brigid O'Shaughnessy (Mary Astor) and is then thrust into a world of mystery and intrigue on the search for a priceless ancient relic. Also on the trail of the "dingus" is the gardenia-scented Joel Cairo (Peter Lorre), the inexperienced hired gun Wilmer Cook (Elisha Cook, Jr.) and "The Fat Man" himself, Kaspar Gutman (Sydney Greenstreet, in his film debut). Generously sponsored by Wallace & Hinz. Doors open at 7 p.m., showtime at 7:30. Admission: $5 all ages.

Price: $5
