"The Big Sleep" is the 1946 film which is based on a novel by Raymond Chandler. Humphrey Bogart plays the detective Phillip Marlowe and he played his character very well. Howard Hawks directed this film as if he knew how to direct mysteries. Marlowe is assigned by Gerneral Sternwood to deal with uncontrol debt by his daughter Carman (Martha Vickers). While there, he falls for Vivan played by Lauren Becall. (who was at the time a couple) One of my favorite scenes inwhich Bogart dressed up as an nerd, to enter a bookstore to gether infornation. I saw the movie on Turner Classic Movies and that's where's the movie is playing unless you got a VCR. "The Big Sleep" is classic Bogart and I placed it second behind "Casablanca" as my all-time favorite Bogart film.
