(1946) Directed by Howard Hawks. Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, Martha Vickers. (118 min.)
Raymond Chandler’s detective Philip Marlowe is one of noir’s defining heroes: “Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid.” Bogart spars with sultry Bacall, with whom he had just fallen in love. “One of the great film noirs, a black and white symphony” (film critic Roger Ebert).
