Quotes from

Philip Marlowe: "'Okay Marlowe,' I said to myself. 'You're a tough guy. You've been sapped twice, choked, beaten silly with a gun, shot in the arm until you're crazy as a couple of waltzing mice. Now let's see you do something really tough - like putting your pants on.'"


Lindsay Marriott: I'm afraid I don't like your manner.
Philip Marlowe: Yeah, I've had complaints about it, but it keeps getting worse.


Philip Marlowe: I caught the blackjack right behind my ear. A black pool opened up at my feet. I dived in. It had no bottom. I felt pretty good - like an amputated leg.

Facts about

Dick Powell's portrayal of Philip Marlowe earned the approval of Raymond Chandler himself.
Lindsay Marriott's car (driven to the jewelry rendezvous by Marlowe) is an Isotta Franchini 8A Spinto variant. This expensive Italian make was typically sold as a chassis with the owner selecting a custom body by a selected coach builder. The car used here is highly unusual (a 4-place convertible, split windshield, the original right hand drive was retained and features parade doors). Although the year is unknown it is likely a 1932. It featured a straight 8-cylinder engine and 4-wheel brakes.
RKO was on the verge of bankruptcy when it signed up aging matinée idol Dick Powell to make a series of musicals. Powell only signed under the proviso that he could play a straight dramatic role first, so he was cast as Philip Marlowe. Attached director Edward Dmytryk was initially horrified at this casting decision.
