‘Murder, My Sweet’ Movie Summary

Based on the Raymond Chandler book Farewell, My Lovely, Edward Dmytryk’s film, Murder, My Sweet begins with Philip Marlowe blindfolded at police headquarters recounting the night’s murders.

Days prior, Moose Malloy hired Marlowe to track down his old girlfriend Velma Valento. After eight years in prison, he no longer knows her whereabouts. Malloy takes Marlowe to The Florian; a nightclub Velma used to work at back in the day. Unfortunately, nobody remembers Velma, and the two men part ways so Marlowe can do some detecting.

Marlowe first heads to Jessie Florian’s home. She’s the widow of the Florian’s old owner, but she’s too drunk to give Marlowe much to go on. He does find Mrs Florian trying to hide a photo of Velma which he confiscates from her. Angry, Mrs Florian orders Marlowe to leave. While still on her porch, Marlowe catches a glimpse of her through her front door window calling someone on the phone in a panic.

  1. The Robert Mitchum version of Farewell My Lovely is available on Amazon Prime. It’s very good, you should check it out.

      1. They also have the Mitchum version of the Big Sleep on prime. I wasn’t very well received and oddly took place in present day(1978). Nice to hear you two mention how much you liked Nightmare Alley. Does it have a shot at making either of your top 100s?

        1. Top 100, I am not sure of, but I am really excited for Guillermo del Toro’s version that he’s producing for Fox Searchlight. Last I heard that was still a go.

        2. Top 100, I am not sure of, but I am really excited for Guillermo del Toro’s version that he’s producing for Fox Searchlight. Last I heard that was still a go.
