Humphrey Bogart is Dashiell Hammett’s definitive private eye, Sam Spade, struggling to keep his hard-boiled cool as the double-crosses pile up. The dialogue, much of it lifted straight from Hammett, is delivered with whip-crack speed as Bogie faces off against Peter Lorre. Sydney Greenstreet, fends off the duplicitous advances of Mary Astor and roughs up a cringing “gunsel” played by Elisha Cook Jr.This movie will be shown at 10 a.m., free of charge, in the exhibit room at McAllen Memorial Library at 601 N. Main.
