The Big Sleep plays as part of the Noir Film Series. This 1946 film casts Bogart as Raymond Chandler‘s cynical private eye Philip Marlowe. The complex storyline forces screenwriters William Faulkner, Leigh Brackett, and Jules Furthmann to consult Raymond Chandler for advice. The end result was one of the most baffling film noirs, but also one of the most successful in sheer star power.
