Murder, My Sweet

Murder, My Sweet

IMDB

(1944, Dir. Edward Dmytryk)

Dick Powell is well-cast as the Raymond Chandler’s cynical wise-cracking detective, Philip Marlowe, who gets wrapped up in blackmail and murder. The story spins every which way, but ultimately the whole flick is based on characters, who are skillfully presented. Stands up well over time with other Chandler adaptations.

4.0/5.0
