Murder, My Sweet (1944)

Ha!  Wuddaya say about one of the seminal film noir offerings that hasn't been said a million times before?  Here's an excellent introduction by TCM:

PRIMARY CAST:  Dick Powell, Claire Trevor, Anne Shirley.  Of course, Claire Trevor plays the femme fatale, and does a great job.  However, betraying my Ginger versus Maryanne predilection, I thought Anne Shirley stole the show 

REVIEWS: The December 31, 1944 edition of Variety had a taut review of Murder, My Sweet, which is apropos for a tight film noir.  But - the Film Noir of the Week blog did a masterful review here!

 FAVORITE QUOTE:  In film noir movies, especially those by Raymond Chandler, it's difficult to pick just one.  But in this case...

Philip Marlowe: My feet hurt. And my mind felt like a plumber’s handkerchief.

RATED: Great movie!
WATCH IT AGAIN: Definitely
DO I WANT TO OWN IT?:  I don't think I need to own it, no.
