Passage to Marseille at Larchmont Public Library

Rob Goldstone, well-known “Movie Man” in Larchmont, NY, will present Passage to Marseille (1944) at the Larchmont Public Library, on Wednesday, September 18, 2013.

The movie will be shown at 2:30 pm. Attendees should meet in the Village Center.

Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.

The Larchmont Public Library is located at 121 Larchmont Avenue, in Larchmont, New York.

Directions to the library are available on the library’s website.

In The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre, Stephen Youngkin discusses the making of Passage to Marseille.

Released in February, 1944, it was the final movie Peter Lorre made with Humphrey Bogart while Peter was still under contract to Warner Bros. The movie’s unusual flashback-within-flashback structure, criticized then and now by film critics and film fans alike, actually follows the outline of the original novel, Men Without a Country, written by Charles Nordhoff and James Norman Hall and published in the June 1942 issue of The Atlantic Monthly.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is available at the Larchmont Public Library, as well as the Nook and Kindle, hard-bound and soft-bound editions.
