It's not that recent a film, but it's got a new DVD release,
so I'll mention it. It's also one of my ten favorite films of
all time: the Dick Richards - Robert Mitchum version of
Raymond Chandler's FAREWELL, MY LOVELY. It's one of those
films I love so much I forgive it its (few) flaws without a
second thought. I much prefer it to the Dick Powell version,
MURDER MY SWEET, though there's nothing wrong with that
version. I just think Mitchum's the man, as far as Marlowe
goes. Anyone see that hilarious spoof of Marlowe he did on
Saturday Night Live?
