Kareem Abdul-Jabbar presents two top-notch [i]noirs[/i] tonight


Recommended Posts

As many of you already know, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is TCM's Guest Programmer today, and I thought it was really awesome that he'd pick two of the most famous noirs ever for the first two time slots tonight:

 

*The Big Sleep* (1946) 8pm ET

Private eye Philip Marlowe investigates a society girl's involvement in the murder of a pornographer.

Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, John Ridgely, Martha Vickers Dir: Howard Hawks BW-114 mins, TV-PG

 

*The Maltese Falcon* (1941) 10pm ET

Hard-boiled detective Sam Spade gets caught up in the murderous search for a priceless statue.

Cast: Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Gladys George, Peter Lorre Dir: John Huston BW-101 mins, TV-PG

 

I think it'll be pretty interesting to hear what he has to say about the two movies and why he picked them.
