Choose hard-boiled or happy with Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn

and Contact ReporterFilm Critic

If classic films are what you are thankful for, this week provides the chance to choose among excellent endeavors that are either happy or hard-boiled.

For hard-boiled fans, you can't do better than a double bill starring Humphrey Bogart: 1941’s “High Sierra,” where he plays gangster “Mad Dog” Roy Earle, and 1946’s “The Big Sleep,” where he personifies Raymond Chandler’s splendid detective Philip Marlowe. Playing Nov. 30 at the Laemmle NoHo, Playhouse and Royal.

For those looking for a brighter vision, Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events have combined to present Blake Edwards' 1961 "Breakfast at Tiffany's,' starring the always incandescent Audrey Hepburn. Playing Nov. 27 and 30 at more than 650 theaters nationally.
