Marlowe (1969) PG

Raymond Chandler’s timeless character Marlowe has been immortalized in film by actors such as Humphrey Bogart (in The Big Sleep) and Dick Powell (in Murder, My Sweet). In this 1969 release based on Chandler’s 1949 novel The Little Sister, James Garner updates the 1940s depiction of Marlowe.

Hard up for cash (as usual), Marlowe takes on a missing person case which has enough twists and turns to keep the viewer interested and a tad confused. Garner’s spot on portrayal of Marlowe led to his role as Rockford in the long running TV series The Rockford Files.
