I like the movie as is, but I agree that Paul Newman could have done an excellent job too.

The book was tired, the movie even more tired, but don't you think Paul Newman could have done a hell of a job as Marlowe the elder.
Nobody plays dynamic old guys like Newman--because he knows he's old and doesn't try to play it older.
