Tired Old Queen At The Movies #131
Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall exchange sexy banter and solve a mystery in Howard Hawks classic version of Raymond Chandler’s “THE BIG SLEEP” (1946). Adapted from the novel by William Faulkner, the story follows private detective Phillip Marlowe (Bogie) as he tries to track down the black mailers of a rich general with two pretty and “pretty wild” daughters (Lauren Bacall and Martha Vickers). The plot is convoluted, the action fast and furious and the dialogue fresh, funny and sexy. It’s an evening of film noir and one of Warner Brothers' best.
