About the Movie
Philip Marlowe searches for a missing woman in this mystery shot entirely from the detective's viewpoint.
One bright spot (only)
A truly wretched film. Montgomery obviously knows nothing about directing or camera work. The only bright spot for me was the rare appearance of Lila Leeds, the Lana Turner look-alike whose career was ruined when she was busted with Robert Mitchum for marijuana in 1948. She's the receptionist in the beginning, and she lights up the screen.
Lady in the Lake
Classic film noir. Original perspective. Robert Montgomery is terrific as always. How about adding "Murder, My Sweet" as a companion film?
Ruined a great book by being too arty.
