The big sleep by Howard Hawks( Visual )

50 editions published between 1945 and 2016 in English and held by 2,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Private detective Philip Marlowe is hired by the wealthy General Sternwood to expose a blackmailer who is holding compromising photos of Sternwood's daughter. The film evokes the chaotic underworld of Chandler's novel through setting and visualisation rather than plot. The complexities of the narrative are still present, but they no longer constitute the main ground against which the noir figure of Marlowe is defined. By stressing characteristics and visual style rather than events, it ultimately reduces a story line that is irretrievably tangled, to minor significance. The definitive Bogart-Becall vehicle, the film plays heavily on the sexual tension between the two actors, expressed primarily through their double entendre-loaded banter and their non-verbal expressions of sympathy that quickly undermine the initial antagonism of the characters

Mirthful murder Cary-ed off in slapstick, slap-happy style! Cary Grant and a stellar cast romp through this classic farce based on Joseph Kesselring's 1941 Broadway hit and breezily directed by Frank Capra. Frazzled drama critic Mortimer Brewster (Grant) has two aunts (Josephine Hull and Jean Adair) who ply lonely geezers with poisoned libations, on sociopathic brother (Raymond Massey) who looks like Boris Karloff, one bonkers brother (John Alexander) who thinks he's Teddy Roosevelt, one impatient new bride (Priscilla Lane) -- and only one night to make it turn out all right. In this circus' center ring is Grant, twisting his face into a clown's gallery of flabbergasted reactions and transforming his natural athletic grace into a rubber-legged comic ballet. You'll die laughing. - Container
