Lady in the Lake (23-Jan-1947)

Director: Robert Montgomery

Writer: Steve Fisher

From novel: The Lady in the Lake by Raymond Chandler

Musical Score: David Snell

Producer: George Haight

Keywords: Mystery, Philip Marlowe, Film Noir

Adrienne Fromsett hires pulp mystery writer and private dick Philip Marlowe to locate the estranged wife of her boss, Derace Kingsby. Told first-person through the eyes of Marlowe himself; we only see him in a scene where he looks at a mirror. Interesting film, but Robert Montgomery doesn't make an engaging Marlowe and both Audrey Totter and Jayne Meadows overact.
