The Big Sleep
Dir: Howard Hawks
Starring: Bogart & Bacall
It's crazy how good this film is. Everything just comes together perfectly - the world weary face of Bogart, the straight-talkin' attitude of Bacall, the way-too-complicated story from Chandler, the razor-sharp screenplay from Faulkner... every element of The Big Sleep is spot on.
Narry B, of course, was on the scene in LA in the 1930's and knew Philip Marlowe in person, so he can verify that Bogart plays the hard-boiled shamus with great authenticity.
NB has very little else to say. Go watch it and enjoy it.
