The Big Sleep

1946, Not rated, 114 min. Directed by Howard Hawks. Starring Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Dorothy Malone, Martha Vickers, John Ridgely and Elisha Cook Jr.

Noir Canon: Perhaps the very best Philip Marlowe screen adaptation, The Big Sleep sizzles with the Bogey-Bacall chemistry and crackling dialogue full of innuendo. Although all of the plot convolutions are impossible to fully untangle, that has never gotten in the way of the film's enjoyment.
