Murder, My Sweet

Original Theatrical Date: December 8, 1944

Murder My Sweet, based on the Raymond Chandler novel Farewell, My Lovely, featured a then-controversial choice of Dick Powell to play the famous Philip Marlowe. Previously, Dick Powell was known only for comedies and musicals, so his appearance in a film noir makes Murder My Sweet an especially unique choice for your mystery collection.

His name is Phillip Marlowe, and for the right price, this private eye will follow an unfaithful husband, find a missing bankroll, or spy on a suspicious neighbor. When he's drawn into a complex web of murder, blackmail and double-dealing, the result is the quintessential film-noir—the one that set the standard for the noir genre.
