Check out *Notorious*. Grant does a great, and understated, job as the tough FBI agent assigned as Ingrid Bergman's undercover contact. If they'd started making the movies a few years earlier, he'd probably have been a great James Bond. I think he'd be acceptable, at the very least, as Marlowe.

I see your point, but imagine him as Marlowe in his prime, or even just ten or fifteen years earlier!
