Movie Review by Movie Addict
March 3rd, 2011

Favorite Movie Quote: "She gave me a smile I could feel in my hip pocket."

When I think of Phillip Marlowe, I generally think of Humphrey Bogart. Robert Mitchum, however played Marlowe twice, and Dick Powell did this film in 1944. I don't want to compare Marlowes because there are more of them, and maybe I haven't seen the best. Maybe I'll make that a project - see all the Marlowes I can.

I am sure of one thing; the Powell version didn't have all the flesh of this film - and I haven't even seen it!

Charlotte Rampling was excellent as the wife of a judge that didn't mind flirting right in front of him.

There is even Sylvester Stallone, who broke out the next year in Rocky.

Sylvia Miles got one of her two Oscar nominations for her role as Jesse, a lush, who knew too much. Knowing too much got you dead quick in this film.

Excellent film noir, even if you knew how it was going to end.
