Made at the height of Hollywood’s golden era Howard Hawk’s adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s novel of the same name was Bacall’s third screen outing and is to this day one of her most memorable. Summoned by the dying General Sternwood, Philip Marlowe is asked to deal with several problems that are troubling his family. As Marlowe starts to pick apart Sternwood’s world he reveals many a dark twist and turn that cumulatively explain why this is still such a favourite of the post war film noir genre.
