Tracing Bogart's career arc and the history of noir's golden age, the following Bogie classics will be screened: The Petrified Forest, High Sierra, The Maltese Falcon, The
Big Sleep, Dark Passage, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Key Largo, and In a Lonely Place.
NEIL Simon's detective spoof satirising such classics as The Maltese Falcon, The

The B movies became the training ground for contract performers, directors, and writers; for example, The Maltese Falcon, the
first film directed by John Huston, was a B picture.
