A radical adaptation of Raymond Chandler's novel, adapted by Leigh Brackett (no slouch at crime novels herself, but best known to movie buffs for her work on the Star Wars trilogy), and filtered through Altman's rambling sensibilities.
Los Angeles detective Philip Marlowe (Elliott Gould) smells a rat when his friend Terry Lennox, who he has just driven to Tijuana, is accused of murder. Convinced of Lennox's innocence, Marlowe follows a convoluted trail which leads him to his friend's mistress, Eileen Wade (Nina Van Pallandt), her alcoholic husband (Sterling Hayden) and hood Marty Augustine, to whom Lennox owed a substantial sum of money. Watch out for an early, unbilled appearance by Arnold Schwarzenegger as one of Augustine's heavies. Gould's laconic take on the private eye affords a refreshing retread of familiar themes.
