- While most of us are sawing logs, a few hearty insomniacs find in the wee wee hours an opportunity for adventure, terror, and love. These titles have been selected to complement this year’s Adult Winter Reading Program, While the City Sleeps.The Big Sleep features Humphrey Bogart as classic private eye Philip Marlowe, hired by a rich invalid to look for a missing associate. Along the way he strikes sparks with the old man's beautiful daughter (Lauren Bacall). This Howard Hawkes production is filled with tough-guy dialogue and a plot so twisty that not even the director was sure what it was all about.Mondays at 6:30 p.m.February 4The Big Sleep (NR; 1946)February 11Sleepless in Seattle (PG; 1993)February 18Nights of Cabiria (NR; 1957)February 25After Hours (R; 1985)March 4Dark City (R; 1998)March 11Date Night (PG-13; 2010)March 18Blade Runner (R; 1982)March 25LA Confidential (R; 1997)
