This 1946 film noir mystery stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogey plays hardboiled L.A. private eye, Philip Marlowe, who follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues and the spoiled rich. Directed by Howard Hawks; screenplay by William Faulkner and Raymond Chandler.
Reviewer Tim Robey of the Daily Telegraph (UK) says “The Big Sleep is the best scripted, best directed, best acted and least comprehensible film noir ever made.” While the plot is a bundle of confusion, the film lives on as a classic with palpable onscreen chemistry between Bogey and Bacall, sinister views of 1940s Los Angeles, and an intelligent, witty script.
Rated PG. Run time 1 hour 56 minutes.
