Movies You Might Have Missed: Murder, My Sweet

I tend to be a sucker for movies about private eyes, mystery, etc. The whole classic noir thing. Murder, My Sweet is an adaptation of the classic Raymond Chandler novel Farewell, My Lovely. In broad strokes, private eye Philip Marlowe is shanghaied by an enormous ex-con into looking for the girl he lost touch with when he was sent to prison. Some other subplots obtrude, but it all ties together nicely in the end.
