    Very enjoyable mystery with Garner terrific in the lead, The film definitely has shades of Jim Rockford looking back at it now.

    James Garner is LA private detective Marlowe who is hired by a young girl to find her missing brother. What starts as a simple job turns into a mystery involving a high profile Hollywood actress, a ruthless gangster, cops, strippers, and one questionable doctor. Garner is very smooth as Marlowe. The standouts in this film include a wow striptease and incredible performance by Rita Moreno, who is smoking hot and a face off between Marlowe and Bruce Lee in his film debut. Enjoyable enough. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dolores Gonzáles: [responding, mid-striptease, to Philip Marlowe's question] The streets are paved with forgotten husbands!
