Rob Goldstone presents Great Movies: “Passage to Marseille”
Wednesday, September 18 at 2:30pm. Meet in the Village Center. Starring Humphrey Bogart, Claude Rains, Michele Morgan and Peter Lorre, this 1944 classic film is set in World War II. As French bomber crews prepare an air raid from a base in England, we learn the story of Matrac (Bogart), a French journalist who opposed the Munich Pact. Framed for murder and sent to Devil’s Island, he and four others escape. They are on a ship bound for Marseilles when France surrenders and fascist sympathizer Major Duval (Sydney Greenstreet) tries to seize the ship for Vichy. This film is not rated.
