Hawks' classic adaptation of Raymond Chandler's novel is a classic films noir starring Humphrey Bogart as private eye Marlowe. Hired by General Sternwood (Charles Waldron) to sort out the mess one of his daughter’s, Carmen (Martha Vickers), has managed to get her life in.
Unfortunately his job becomes increasing difficult when no one, not even Carmen’s older sister Vivian (Lauren Bacall), wants to help with his investigations. As Marlowe's investigations unveil a deadly web of deceit, and as his relationship with Vivian develops, the body count mounts.
