Plot Summary

Private eye Philip Marlowe, hired to protect a young woman from her own indiscretions, falls in love with her older sister while uncovering murders galore. A dense, chaotic thriller that succeeded in defining and setting a standard for its genre. The very best Raymond Chandler on film combining a witty script with great performances, especially from Bogart and Bacall.

Featuring Special Guest

Mr. Kanfer was a writer and editor at Time for more than twenty years and was its first bylined film critic. He is a Literary Lion of the New York Public Library and the recipient of numerous writing awards.
