Private detective Philip Marlowe is hired by the wealthy General Sternwood to expose a blackmailer who is holding compromising photos of Sternwood's daughter. The film evokes the chaotic underworld of Chandler's novel through setting and visualisation rather than plot. The complexities of the narrative are still present, but they no longer constitute the main ground against which the noir figure of Marlowe is defined. By stressing characteristics and visual style rather than events, it ultimately reduces a story line that is irretrievably tangled, to minor significance. The definitive Bogart-Becall vehicle, the film plays heavily on the sexual tension between the two actors, expressed primarily through their double entendre-loaded banter and their non-verbal expressions of sympathy that quickly undermine the initial antagonism of the characters
