Violent episode of a brilliant series
26 September 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Chandler's early short stories - on which this series is based - were much more violent than his novels. This episode is particularly violent. At its centre is the appealing figure of Robin Givens, who is perfect as the starstruck young girl in the clutches of a set of crooks. Another attractive character is the washed-up Hollywood star, flashing his teeth in a smile for the cameras. But some of the black characters seem stereotyped, such as the theatrical and camp brothel keeper, and the hit man who likes to strangle. Powers Boothe is wonderful as usual. Despite competition from James Garner and Dick Powell, he is the best Marlowe. Costumes, music and locations are fabulous too.
