The Big Sleep

When private investigator Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) accepts the blackmail case of one of Los Angeles’ wealthiest men, he finds himself deep within a web of lies, drugs, gambling, pornography, and murder woven around his client’s two beautiful daughters. But Marlowe’s most startling discovery is his inexorable attraction to one of the sisters, Vivian (Lauren Bacall). With the help from Vivian, Marlowe hatches a plot to free the family from this web and trap the real culprit.
