Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

The Big Sleep (1946)

Directed by Howard Hawks

Starring Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, John Ridgely, Martha Vickers


Interesting seeing Bogart for the first time and his standard of “coolness.” But what was the deal with the end? They couldn’t kiss?

There are a few funny scenes (police on the phone), and a few good lines. I hate to say it, but I think this role would have been great for Chevy. Actually this movie (especially the bookstore scene) might have been the starting point of Fletch.
