Aro Recommended Big Sleep, The


USA 1946, 114 minutes, B/W
Dir. Howard Hawks
Rating: [M]
Genres: Classics / Film Noir


Aroview: This adaptation of Raymond Chandler's mystery novel has perhaps become the greatest film noir of all time. Humphrey Bogart as detective Marlowe falls for Lauren Bacall amid sinister proceedings in her family home. So packed with wit, glamour and excitement that one forgives the sometimes confusing narrative. Director's cut available.
