Some people consider this the greatest noir novel of all time. What is certain is that Raymond Chandler helped shape so much of what we know as noir today. The adaptation of this novel, starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall is also one of the best films, noir or otherwise, ever made.
The iconic first novel from crime fiction master Raymond Chandler, featuring Philip Marlowe, the "quintessential urban private eye" (Los Angeles Times).
A dying millionaire hires private eye Philip Marlowe to handle the blackmailer of one of his two troublesome daughters, and Marlowe finds himself involved with more than extortion. Kidnapping, pornography, seduction, and murder are just a few of the complications he gets caught up in.

Another Raymond Chandler adaptation, this 1973 film noir starring Elliot Gould and directed by Robert Altman is often overlooked. It shouldn't be.
Elliott Gould (Busting) gives one of his best performances as a quirky, mischievous Philip Marlowe in Robert Altman's (Thieves Like Us) fascinating and original send-up of Raymond Chandler's classic detective story. Co-starring Nina Van Pallandt, Sterling Hayden, Mark Rydell and Henry Gibson with a screenplay Leigh Brackett (The Big Sleep), The Long Goodbye is a gloriously inspired tribute to Hollywood with an ending that's as controversial as is it provocative. Private eye Philip Marlowe (Gould) faces the most bizarre case of his life, when a friend's apparent suicide turns into a double murder involving a sexy blonde, a disturbed gangster and a suitcase of drug money. But as Marlowe stumbles toward the truth, he soon finds himself lost in a maze of sex and deceit - only to discover that in L.A., if love is dangerous... friendship is murder.
