Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall star in this classic adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s hardboiled detective story. Private eye Philip Marlow is hired on what seems like a simple case of blackmail, but quickly finds himself embroiled in the seedy Los Angeles underworld of gambling, narcotics, pornography and murder. With star-making performances, slick direction from Howard Hawkes and a peerless screenplay adapted by William Faulkner, this film noir love story remains one of the true classics of the Hollywood Golden Era.
