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

Bachelorette showgirl singers Dorothy Shaw and Lorelei Lee are sailing to Paris, courtesy of Lorelei's millionaire boyfriend Gus Esmond, Jr. They're also being shadowed--thanks to Gus Sr.--by private detective Ernie Malone. Lorelei gets embroiled in a contretemps involving Sir Francis "Piggy" Beekman, outspoken Lady Beekman, and a tiara. Dorothy, meanwhile, becomes involved in a running flirtation with the detective. All's well that ends well, but everything plays second fiddle to the snazzy costumes and in-your-face attitudes sported by the showgirls. One of Howard Hawks' biggest commercial hits, this lush, garish, cynical, yet fun-filled fortune-hunter satire is based on a 1949 Broadway musical and has a wisp of a plot, serving merely to tie together the lavish musical numbers

The arrest and incarceration of Joe Burdette for murder has set these three at odds with his brother, corrupt and wealthy landowner Nathan Burdette. Nathan assembles a force of hired guns to spring Joe, while Chance enlists hotshot gunslinger Colorado. Complications arise in the form of Feathers -- not the usual saloon floozy but a competent professional gambler accustomed to sparring with men -- who has an eye for Chance
