The story is engaging and makes you quessing about the real identity of the murderer to the very end. Dick Powell is marvelous as a Philip Marlowe. In the film he gets the funniest lines and delivers them perfectly. Dmytyryks direction and visualisation of the story beats most of the film noir-genre by miles. Darkness, shadows, visual innovations and very Lynchesque dream sequence shows that Dmyty... read more

This adaptation of the Raymond Chandler novel 'Farewell, My Lovely' has private eye Philip Marlowe hired by Moose Malloy, a petty crook just out of prison after a seven year stretch, to look for his former girlfriend, Velma, who has not been seen for the last six years. The case is tougher than Marlowe expected as his initially promising enquiries lead to a complex web of deceit involving bribery, perjury and theft, and where no one's motivation is obvious, least of all Marlowe's.

"Raymond Chandler's famous private eye character Philip Marlowe has been the subject of numerous film adaptations, the most celebrated of which is Howard Hawks' 'The Big Sleep'. Two years before 'The Big Sleep' came out, however, there was an earlier adaptation of a Philip Marlowe mystery called 'Murder, My Sweet'. Based on the Raymond Chandler novel 'Farewell, My Lovely' (the film's title was changed in America for fear audiences would take it for a mushy wartime musical), 'Murder, My Sweet' sta"
