New in new packaging. 1946 Run time: 114:00. L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) takes on a blackmail case and follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. Raymond Chandlers legendary gumshoe solves it in hard-boiled style-and style is what The Big Sleep is all about. Director Howard Hawks serves up snappy character encounters (particularly those of Bogart and Lauren Bacall), brisk pace and atmosphere galore.
