TMBDOS! Episode 55: “The Big Sleep” (1946 & 1978).

March 21st, 2016


Lee and Daniel continue their look at noir/neo-noir and crime films. This week it's the Bogart & Bacall powerhouse "The Big Sleep" from 1946, directed by Howard Hawks. They also spend some time covering the 1978 remake from Michael Winner, starring Robert Mitchum. They contrast the original with that film as well as the Raymond Chandler source material, and mention the original version from 1945, that was not released to the general public until it was gutted and re-shot into the 1946 version everyone knows today. Also covered: what they've watched as of late.


Featured music: "And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine" by Stan Kenton (Anita O'Day, vocals).
