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?
