Private eye Philip Marlowe is hired to find the missing son-in-law of an ailing millionaire, and gets mixed up with his client’s daughters, femme fatale Vivian and nymphet Carmen, not to mention a dirty book racket, organised crime, blackmail and several murders.
Bogart as Marlowe is compelling in this classic thriller that is complex but triumph of atmospheric cool.
