“High Sierra” to screen at PianoForte March 11

High Sierra (1941) starring Ida Lupino and Humphrey Bogart will screen March 11, 6:45 p.m. at PianoForte, 1335 S. Michigan Ave., 2nd Floor. Admission is $5 for all admissions.

Ida Lupino and Humphrey Bogart
After the success of They Drive By Night (1940, Lupino was emerging as a major star at Warner Bros. Bogart desperate to advance to lead roles, talked George Raft (director Raul Walsh’s first choice) out of taking the role. It proved to be his breakout performance; he would never again play second leads.

Bogart plays Roy (Mad Dog) Earle recently released from prison and eager for one big-time robbery so he can retire in comfort. Along the way, he meets Marie Garson (Lupino), a rootless young woman who falls in love with him. Planning the big heist isn't an easy job, but Roy is willing to risk it all for his one big chance at a new life with Marie.

  1. It's been a long time since I've seen this film, and you've convinced me to see it again this weekend.
