Under the inimitable direction of Robert Altman, Elliott Gould stars as the laid-back, legendary private eye Philip Marlowe investigating a mysterious murder. Back on the big screen for a short but sweet hello for its 50th anniversary.

Altman updates Raymond Chandler for the liberated, hedonistic 1970s in this brilliantly idiosyncratic adaptation of one of the writer’s most renowned novels.

Elliott Gould brings a sardonic wit to his portrayal of private eye Philip Marlowe, who helps out his old friend Terry Lennox (Jim Bouton) late one night by driving him across the border from Los Angeles to Tijuana—only to discover once he’s back that Lennox’s wife has been murdered. As Marlowe is drawn deeper into a labyrinthine investigation involving the search for a missing novelist (Sterling Hayden), Altman exposes the darkness lurking beneath California’s sun-splashed surface.

This anniversary screening will be introduced by Hugh Odling-Smee (Film Hub NI).
