At first the cultural gap seems insurmountable, but despite their differences, they fall in love. As they get to know one another, they invariably attempt to change each other, causing friction and their eventual split.
The film watches them try new relationships, as they reluctantly pull away from each other. The film, in actuality, chronicles the end of thei r relationship. Considered by many to be the best war movie of all time, with incredible performances, especially that of hawkish Lt. Colonel Kilgore Duvall who "loves the smell of napalm in the morning.

The Big Sleep Starring: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Martha Vickers, John Ridgely Director: Howard Hawks Classic atmospheric film noir mystery with crackling dialogue, from Raymond Chandler's first novel, with an incomprehensible plot and tortuous story line about a private investigator hired by General Sternwood, a dying, invalid millionaire to look into drugs, blackmail, nymphomania, pornography, decadence and murder - and to follow after and protect his sharp-tongued, indiscreet, thumb-sucking nymphette daughter Vickers.
The film introduced down-at-the-heels private detective Philip Marlowe Bogartand set the standard for private detective movies. The private eye becomes sexually attracted to the older, sultry daughter Vivian Bacall. Without any Academy Award nominations.
Placed in historical context, it's a landmark cinematic, technological achievement with now -familiar techniques of crosscutting, the flash-back, the close-up, and deep focusthough offensive due to its racism, dated views and stereotypes, and glorification of the KKK. Griffith's film tells the interwoven story of two families, one Northern and one Southern, confronting the Civil War and Reconstruction periods.
The Camerons, headed by "Little Colonel" Ben Cameron, and the Stonemans, headed by politician Austin Stoneman, find themselves on opposite sides of the battle lines when War comes.

Joined by Clyde's brother Hackmanhis wife Blanche Parsonsand a gas-station attendant Pollardthe gang goes on a bumbling crime spree through Texas and Oklahoma. Controversial when released because of its bulletriddled ending, it marked the coming increase in visceral cinematic violence.

Nicholson Guinnessconstruct a rail bridge - and unwittingly aid the war effort of their Japanese captors and the camp commander Col. Saito Hayakawa. A tremendously antagonistic battle of wills ensues between the two Colonels.
Nicholson supervises the bridge's construction with a twisted sense of pride in his creation to show up the Japanese as inferior.

A reporter is sent to investigate the significance of "Rosebud," the last word uttered by Kane Wellesthrough interviews with various associates and his wife Cotten, Sloane, Comingore.
The newspaper magnate's wealth and power ultimately leave him abandoned and alone in his castle-like refuge. With its bravura direction, broken narrative and flashbacks, and vivid performances, this is considered a modern masterpiece. Every aspect of the production marked an advance in film language: the deep-focus, deeply shadowed cinematography; the discontinuous narrative in a screenplay co-authored by Herman Mankiewicz ; the innovative use of sound and score; the low-level camera shots; the ensemble acting from Welles' Mercury Theater.

This classic, with its exquisite sets, photography and editing, spans several centuries and cultures.

Three of the stories are based on historical fact: Medieval Paris France during the Reformation and the reign of Charles IX, including the slaughter of the Huguenots; the crucifixion of Christ in Judea; and the fall of Babylonia.
The fourth tale is a turn-of-the-century "modern" story of a man unjustly accused of murder.
