The Big Sleep

Classic film noir: sharp, stylish and as beautiful as a split lip. Not a plot line to fall asleep to, but with dialogue this cracking, who could. Famously, Bacall became Mrs Bogart between re-takes.

Hey, I watched that last weekend. But it was Robert Mitchum, Jimmy Steward and unimpresive.

I confess I too found the later version with Mitchum unimpressive, so for once we agree, Rick. ;^)

I do heartily recommend Raymond Chandler's hard-edged books, from which this and other films came. But as Chandler's Philip Marlowe, Bogart is superb.
