Description:A remake of the classic Humphrey Bogart/Lauren Bacall movie of the same name. There were a lot of famous people in this one too. Robert Mitchum as Philip Marlowe, Jimmy Stewart as General Sternwood, Joan Collins, Edward Fox, Oliver Reed. Marlowe is hired by Sternwood to find out who's blackmailing his wild daughters and also to discover what happened to his son-in-law. There's all sorts of murders and twists and complications, but in the end it was the younger Sternwood daughter who killed her sister's husband because he refused her seduction offer.
My Rating:5

Reviews for The Big Sleep

Review - Big Sleep, The

Jimmy Stewart was old and had only two small appearances. Mitchum was way too old to play Marlowe and didn't seem all that interested. In fact, nobody did, and I didn't really care who killed who or why.
