The Big Sleep (Movies)

The best version of The Big Sleep, a novel by Raymond Chandler, was a 1946 movie starring the legendary Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Bogart played private eye Philip Marlowe (who was incidentally based on Sam Spade, the Hammett detective), hired to help a bookseller, and Bacall is the femme fatale bookseller's daughter who finds herself drawn to the tough detective. The plot is confusing, but the movie rocks. No noir festival should be without it.
