The Maltese Falcon – Cert PG
Cited as the first major film noir, the Maltese Falcon is the perfect place to start the journey into film noir. Based on Dashiell Hammett‘s 1929 novel of the same name the film stars Humphrey Bogart as P.I. Sam Spade and also features Mary Astor in the role of the femme fatale. The Maltese Falcon is a perfect introduction to the dark side of mean streets, knife-edged heroes, dark shadows and tough dames.
Paint It Black: Film Noir exhibition and Film Screenings
Local photographer, Paul Jackson of Unit 8 Photography, is producing a touring Film Noir inspired photographic exhibition that will feature local residents as they recreate some of the most memorable and distinctive scenes form this truly unique period of filmmaking. In partnership with Culture Warrington, LiveWire and Warrington Borough Council he plans to produce 12 photographs that will be toured around five libraries across the town. Each week the exhibition will move to the next library and the work will also be accompanied by a special film screening of a classic Film Noir.
These films have been hand-picked to showcase some of the best examples of Film Noir produced throughout the forties and fifties. Each film screening will be accompanied by a free introductory programme featuring an overview of each film plus a brief history of film noir.
