The Reviews for The Big Sleep (1946) 1080p

Classic Noir Film with gritty interpretation , atmospheric settings and powerhouse filmmakingReviewed byma-cortesVote: 7/10

Absorbing and worthy suspense film about blackmails , killings , corruption and strong intrigue . Starred by Phillip Marlowe , a two-fisted and cynical private detective operating in Los Angeles . Phillip (Humphrey Bogart at his high point in his glorious career)'s fee was £50 a day , plus expenses . Then , the toughest Shamus , Philip Marlowe , is hired by a rich family on a twisted case with unexpected consequences . As Marlowe asked by the elderly (and near death) wealthy General Sternwood to investigate an attempt at blackmail on one of his daughters . Before the complex case is over, he's seen murder, blackmail, and what might be love . He soon finds that the attempt is half hearted at best and the daughters seem to be more connected with the disappearance of strange characters . Marlowe becomes involved with the oldest daughter , a society dame called Vivian (Lauren Bacall) and her uncontrollable as well as addled sister Carmen (Mary Vickers) who seem unconcerned with disappearances , further complicating the mystery . Only General Sternwood seems concerned as mobsters and hired killers continue to appear in the path of the investigation .

This first-rate and entertaining picture draws its riveting tale and power from the interaction of finely drawn roles as well as drama , emotion and moody atmosphere . This classic mystery thriller follows Raymond Chandler's book fairly closely otherwise . Twisted film Noir about murders , troubled relationships , treason , dark secrets , including an unforgettable dialog ; being based on the novel ¨Big Sleep¨ and screen-written by the prestigious William Faulkner , Leigh Brackett , Jules Furthman and the same Raymond Chandler . Eager to repeat the success of To have and have not (1944), Warner Bros. studio chief Jack L. Warner gave Howard Hawks $50,000 to purchase the rights for "The Big Sleep" ; Hawks bought the rights for $5,000 and pocketed the rest. It has a convoluted and difficult intrigue though stars can quite compensate for some far-fetched moments . It packs a good realization , an original script , haunting atmosphere , intriguing events ; for that reason madness and murder prevail . Here Bogart is extraordinary and as cool as ever ; he plays as the tough-talking P.I. , his scenes with Lauren Bacall are awesome and at their best compared to those they shared in ¨Dark passage¨ , ¨Key Largo¨ and ¨To have and to have not¨ . The couple throws in enough sparks to ignite several lighters . This was the best pairing of cynical Humphrey Bogart and sultry Lauren Bacall , a fifth film was planned several years later, but Bogart died before it could be made . Due to Humphrey Bogart's affair with co-star Lauren Bacall, his marital problems escalated during filming, and his drinking often resulted in his being unable to work. Three months after the film was finished, Bacall and Bogart were married. Exciting as well as complex film , possessing a mysterious and fascinating blend of gripping thriller , serenity , baroque suspense in which especially stands out the portentous performances , evocative cinematography in black and white by Sid Hickox and magnificent musical score by the classic Max Steiner . A pre-release adaptation run 116 minutes with 18 m. of scenes re-shot and reused in the official release . And also shown in horrible computer-colored version .

This is first film version of Raymond Chandler's first novel "The Big Sleep". The second was The big sleep in 1978 by Michael Winner with Robert Mitchum , Oliver Reed , Edward Fox , Richard Todd , Richard Boone Sarah Miles and Candy Clark , this remake was released about 32 years after the original . The latter takes place in the then contemporary Britain of 1977, even though Hawks's Big sleep took place in Los Angeles in 1941 . The movie was part of a predominantly cycle of pictures adapted from novels by Raymond Chandler , especially his first four novels , such as Murder, My Sweet (1944) , The Brasher Doubloon (1947); and The Lady in the Lake (1947). It had a revival in the 1970s , the films included Marlowe, (1969), The big sleep (1978), A long goodbye (1973) and Farewell my lovely (1975) as well as Double Indemnity (1973) made for television Chandler was screenwriter on the original (1944) directed by Billy Wilder .

Almost Put Me In A Big SleepReviewed bynegeoVote: 2/10

I know the people involved in this picture are supposed to be screen legends but what a god awful film this was! The plot is going in 50 different directions while people are getting shot up in all sorts of public places without any cops investigating the shootings. While I did understand the story I fail to see how some would call this one of the best films ever made. I just don't see it.

Classic private eye tale with Bogart and Bacall in fine formReviewed byDeeNine-2Vote: 8/10

This classic of American cinema, actually made during the war and released in 1946, got a whole nation of young men affecting Bogey mannerisms, raising their eyebrows or showing their teeth while grimacing, and especially pulling on their earlobes while deep in thought, a smoking cigarette dangling between their lips. It was the genius of Howard Hawks, who directed, to do everything possible to make Humphrey Bogart a matinée idol, including having Lauren Bacall slump down in the car seat so as not to tower over him. With this movie a new kind of cinematic hero was created, the existential PI, a seemingly ordinary looking guy gifted with street smarts and easy courage, admired by men, and adored by women.

Hawks fashioned this, part of the Bogart legend, with a noire script penned by William Faulkner, et al., adapted from Raymond Chandler's first novel, that sparkled with spiffy lines, intriguing characters, danger and a not entirely serious attention to plot detail. Hawks surrounded Bogey with admiring dames, beginning with the sexy Martha Vickers who tries to jump into his lap while he's still standing (as Marlowe tells General Sternwood), and ending with the incomparable Lauren Bacall, looking beguiling, beautiful and mysteriously seductive. In fact, every female in the cast wants to get her hands on Bogey, including a quick and easy Dorothy Malone, bored in her specs while clerking at a book store. Hawks also employed some very fine character actors, most notably Elisa Cook Jr., and Bob Steele, the former as always, the little guy crook, (Harry Jones), and the latter, as often seen in westerns, the mindless heavy with a gun (Canino). Charles Waldron played the world-weary general and Charles D. Brown was the butler.

I was reminded somehow of the old Charlie Chan movies with the dark, mysterious, ornately-decorated interiors heavily carpeted and studded with ethnic statuettes, especially the house on Laverne Terrace that Bogey keeps coming back to, and the glass-paned doors and glass-separated cubicals of his office and others. The atmospheric L.A. created here has been much admired and imitated, cf., Chinatown (1974) and L.A. Confidential (1997), two very superior movies that continued the tradition.

In comparing this to the book, I have to say it's a little on the white-washed side, and not as clearly drawn--'confused' some have said. Of course liberties were taken with Chandler's novel to make it romantic. Chandler's novel emphasizes cynicism, and romance takes a back seat to manliness and loyalty to the client. An especially striking difference is in the character of General Sternwood's younger daughter, Carmen. She is vividly drawn in the book as something of monster, a degenerate sex kitten who would try and do just about anything. She is twice encountered butt naked by Marlowe, once in his bed. Being the sterling guy he is, he turns her away. (Right. I could do that.) Another difference is in all the sleazy details about the low-life underworld of Los Angeles that are omitted or glossed over in the film, including Geiger's homosexuality and his gay house guest, Carol Lundgren. (Of course there was a code in those days.) Bacall's character in the movie is actually a fusion of Vivian and Mona Mars from the book, made nice for movie fans. In the book, Marlowe kisses Vivian, but turns down her invitation for more intimate contact. In the movie, of course, there is no way Bogart is going to say 'no' to Bacall. In the book Marlowe seems to prefer whiskey to women.

Most of the sharp dialogue comes right from Chandler's novel, including Bogart's grinning line, 'Such a lot of guns around town, and so few brains.' Interesting is the little joke on Bogart in the opening scene. In the novel, Chandler's hero is greeted by the purring Carmen with the words, 'Tall, aren't you?' Well, the one thing Bogey ain't is tall, and so in the movie Carmen says, 'You're not very tall, are you?' Bogart comes back with, 'I try to be.' In the novel, Marlowe says, 'I didn't mean to be.'

By the way, the film features Bacall singing a forties tune and looking mighty good doing it.
