Ah more classic noir, this time the best private dick around, Marlowe. This week’s offering is Lady in the Lake.
Private eye Phillip Marlowe (Robert Montgomery) wants to get out of the detective racket and into crime writing. But when he’s called to the office of editor Adrienne Fromsett (Audrey Totter), it’s not to talk about his story ideas — she wants him to locate the missing wife of her boss, Mr. Kingsby(Leon Ames). The assignment quickly becomes complicated when bodies start turning up. This Raymond Chandler adaptation is notable for being filmed entirely from Marlowe’s first-person perspective.
If you get a chance check it out tonight on TCM @ 11pm CST or tomorrow morning @ 9am CST. Check out the trailer below. Have a good one.
