MANCHESTER >>Take a step back in time on Tuesday, Jan. 13 at 2 p.m. and enjoy one of the best films of the 1940s at the Manchester Community Library. Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall ignite the screen in a film noir adaptation of Raymond Chandler's steamy detective novel, "The Big Sleep." When private investigator Philip Marlowe (Bogart) accepts the blackmail case of one of Los Angeles' wealthiest men, his probe leads deep into a web of lies, vice and murder woven around his client's two beautiful daughters. But Marlowe's most startling discovery is his inexorable attraction to one of the sisters.
The 1946 film is free and open to the public. For movie title, call the library at 802-362-2607. Refreshments will be served, provided courtesy of Neighbor to Neighbor. Running time is 114 minutes. Manchester Community Library is located at 138 Cemetery Ave.
