Curator of historical art Janet Blake introduces the 1944 film noir.
In Murder, My Sweet, Philip Marlowe is drawn into a deeply complex web of mystery and deceit after being hired to find an ex-con’s former girlfriend. Based on Raymond Chandler’s 1940 novel Farewell, My Lovely, the film was the first to feature Chandler’s primary character, the hard-boiled private detective Philip Marlowe, and was a key influence in the development of the film noir genre.
