Lauren Bacall, one of the last of the great Hollywood icons, died Aug. 12. She may be best remembered for the four films she made with her husband, Humphrey Bogart. In October, Friday Night Flicks, the Belfast Free Library's free film series, will honor her memory by showing all four, presented in the Abbott Room at 7 p.m.

Nineteen-year-old Bacall was an instant sensation when she made her screen debut in the Oct. 3 feature, “To Have And Have Not,” a wartime drama based loosely on a novel by Ernest Hemingway. The chemistry between her and future husband Bogart was so strong that her small part was expanded into a major role.

Fair warning: the plot of “The Big Sleep,” the Oct. 10th film, makes no sense. But audiences get swept up in the interplay between Bogart and Bacall and never really seem to care. Howard Hawk's adaptation of Raymond Chandler's hard-boiled detective novel is one of the classics of film noir.

On Oct. 17, Bogart plays a fugitive and Bacall the woman who shelters him in the offbeat thriller “Dark Passage.” The first part of the movie is filmed via the subjective camera technique, in which we see everything from Bogart's point of view.

In John Huston's “Key Largo,” Bogart plays a war veteran who travels to a hotel in the Florida Keys to visit the widow (Bacall) and family of a soldier who died under his command. Little does he know the danger that he is walking into. “Key Largo,” screened Oct. 24, boasts an all-star cast that also includes Lionel Barrymore, Edward G. Robinson and Claire Trevor in a role that won her an Oscar.
