Day 26 of Noirvember: Don’t Snooze on The Big Sleep (1946)

Tune in to TCM on November 27th for The Big Sleep (1946), starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, directed by Howard Hawks, and containing what wins the prize for one of noirs most convoluted plots.

Click below for one of my many favorite scenes from the film, featuring Bogart and Sonia Darrin. Darrin, incidentally, is still living as of this posting; click here and turn to page 6 for an article from The Dark Pages newsletter that shines the spotlight on this fascinating actress.

And join me tomorrow for Day 27 of Noirvember!

  1. I love, LOVE this scene. Bogart is delightfully campy.

    As for Sonia Darrin, she can really hold her own against Bogart, plus she look fabulous in that dress.

  2. Have the DVD. Can watch either version any time I want to see it. Don’t have to depend on the kindness of strangers.
