Overview

Robert Mitchum reprises his role as Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe from Farewell, My Lovely, in this misconceived remake of Howard Hawks's classic 1946 film -- transferring the setting from 1940s California to 1970s London. Marlowe is hired by a rich and dying General Sternwood James Stewart to find out who is blackmailing him. Marlowe then meets Sterwood's daughters -- the crazy and degenerate Camilla Candy Clark and the more even-tempered Charlotte Sarah Miles. Opening up a can of worms, Marlowe unveils a collection of unsavory characters -- Eddie Mars Oliver Reed, an inveterate gambler having an affair with Charlotte; Joe Brody Edward Fox, Camilla's ex-lover; and Agnes Joan Collins, a sexy bookstore clerk. The plot becomes even more chaotic when it is found that Camilla has been posing in the nude for pornographer Arthur Geiger John Justin. When Geiger turns up dead, Camilla becomes implicated in Geiger's murder.

    going thru the motions worsened by chopping the asspect ratio

    as much as i wanted to buy this film i regret it since it was ruined by the studio having the nerve to chop off the sides & destroy the visual impact & intent of the director. what a slap to the actors who gathered to walk thru this plot, sort of like john wayne's last movie. hats off to james stewart, robert mitchum et al who tried to pull it off but rent this one instead to show the studios they can't make $ on releasing inferior products which do not represent the film content
