One of the true classics of the noir psychological thriller and featuring one of the finest Humphrey Bogart performances. Bogart plays the intense Dixon Steele, a screenwriter with high standards and a hair trigger temper who finds himself a suspect when Mildred, a hat check girl he knows, is murdered. Immediately he gets an alibi from a neighbour Laurel (Gloria Grahame), and equally quickly he recognises that this is a woman that meets his standards. The question is, as suspicion of his involvement in Mildred’s death continues, can he make himself meet hers?

The screening on the Friday 29th December at 6:30pm will be introduced by film lecturer David Leicester.
