One of my local public television stations presented Murder, My Sweet, 1944 film noir effort a few weeks ago and I snapped up the chance to see an adaptation of Raymond Chandler I'd never gotten to before. It adapts Farewell, My Lovely the first Chandler novel I read many years ago now. A few months ago I reviewed a gaggle of Marlowe movie adaptations and now at long last I can say I've seen the first movie to bring the smart-mouthed detective to the big screen.

|Mander, Shirley, and Powell|
|Femme Fatale Indeed|
This one is recommended but hand onto your hat, it's a wild ride.
