The Big Sleep
A dangerous blackmailer has targeted the Sternwoods, a wealthy family once tucked away in the safety of their Los Angeles mansion. But while private eye Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) works on the case, he ends up falling for the clan's fiery daughter (Lauren Bacall). Crackling dialogue and the perfect pairing of Bogart and Bacall make this adaptation of Raymond Chandler's novel a timeless classic. Howard Hawks directs.
