1975, Film: “Farewell, My Lovely”

On August 8, 1975 "Farewell, My Lovely" premiered. Directed by Dick Richards, the film is based on Raymond Chandler's novel "Farewell, My Lovely" (1940), which had previously been adapted for film as "The Falcon Takes Over" (1942) and “Murder, My Sweet” (1944). Main stars were Robert Mitchum as detective Philip Marlowe and Charlotte Rampling as Helen Grayle. Mitchum would return to the role of Marlowe three years later in a 1978 remake of The Big Sleep.

Philip Marlowe (Robert Mitchum) is hired by Moose Malloy (Jack O'Halloran) to locate his former girl friend Velma, a former dancer at a nightclub. Marlowe finds that once he has taken the case, events put him in dangerous situations, and he is forced to follow a trail of double-crosses before he is able to locate Velma...
