Movie Info

This remake of the 1944 film, 'Murder, My Sweet,' also based on the Raymond Chandler novel, concerns private eye Philip Marlowe's attempts to locate Velma, a former dancer at a seedy nightclub and the girlfriend of Moose Malloy, a petty criminal just out of prison. Marlowe finds that he is forced to follow a confusing trail of untruths and double crosses.

Watching this movie has approximately the same effect as being locked overnight in a secondhand clothing store in Pasadena. There is an awful lot of dust and, after a while, the dummies look as if they are moving.

Despite an impressive production and some firstrate performances, this third version fails to generate much suspense or excitement.

The film's triumph is Mitchum's definitive Marlowe, which captures perfectly the character's down-at-heel integrity and erratic emotional involvement with his cases.

It's as if someone had put pillow springs, power-steering and a tape deck into a classic racing-car. It is still handsome and it still goes, but it is a handsome mediocrity.

"Farewell, My Lovely" is a great entertainment and a celebration of Robert Mitchum's absolute originality.

What you have here is a very solid film that zings as well as zigs and zags to keep you guessing.

Like the noir bible says, the only time Marlowe gets actual rest is when he's knocked out by some unseen party, always waking up surrounded by a corpse or two.

As movie makeovers go, this is a worthy effort, and thanks to Mitchum's presence, electric entertainment.

An affectionate adaptation of Raymond Chandler's novel that beautifully evokes the seamy side of 1940s Los Angeles via superb production design and the same period atmosphere cinematographer Alonzo previously evoked for Chinatown.

The film's success lies in Mitchum's hard-boiled portrayal of Marlowe.

Terrific casting, terrific noir thriller.

A romantic detective story starring Robert Mitchum that harkens back to a time when even gumshoes had their own moral code

Truly fine neo-noir compares favorably with the 1944 version.

Mitchum makes a perfect Marlowe.
