The Petrified Forest is a 1936 American film, directed by Archie Mayo starring Leslie Howard, Bette Davis, and Humphrey Bogart. A precursor of film noir, it was adapted from Robert E. Sherwood's stage play of the same name. The screenplay was written by Delmer Daves and Charles Kenyon, and adaptations were later performed on radio and television as well. The film is about a former British writer turned wandering drifter and a French War bride getting together in a restaurant owned by a waitress and family who hate old west stories, but they will soon hear one of the greatest stories they've ever heard...
