The picture they were born for!
Humphrey Bogart is private detective Philip Marlowe in this 1946 noir classic based on the hard-boiled novel by Raymond Chandler. Co-starring Lauren Bacall and directed by Howard Hawks. More
"Follows private eye Marlowe (Bogart) as he finds his way through the jungle of gamblers, pornographers, killers and blackmailers who have attached themselves to the rich old general (Charles Waldron) and his two randy daughters (Bacall and Martha Vickers). Some bad guys get killed and others get arrested, and we don't much care - because the real result is that Bogart and Lauren Bacall end up in each other's arms. The Big Sleep is a lust story with a plot about a lot of other things." (Roger Ebert) Hide
