Summary
"L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe takes on a blackmail case ... and follows a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. But Raymond Chandler's legendary gumshoe solves it in hard-boiled style - and style is what The Big Sleep is all about. This DVD doubles your pleasure, offering two versions of this whodunit supreme: the familiar 1946 theatrical version (Side A, 114 min.) full of reshot scenes of incendiary Bogart/Bacall chemistry, and the less-familiar 1945 prerelease version (Side B, 116 min.), which recently resurfaced and whose plot and resolution are more linear in fashion"--Container
