'The Big Sleep,’ at the Earle,
A Corpse-Strewn Melodrama
By Harry MacArthur
The Big Sleep,” In which Lauren Bacall again sullenly woos Hum
phrey Bogart, is a picture that makes more corpses than sense. Adaptec
from a novel by Raymond Chandler, it has a higher mortality rate foi
actors than anything you have seen in weeks. At least six are shot dead
another is invited to toss off a poison potion and still another is dropped
off a pier in an automobile, while Bogart, playing Chandler's detective
rim maiiuwc, is Kivru h. uiuiuugn
going over by thugs on a couple of
occasions.
While all this rough by-plav Is
under way. however, it never does
become quite clear just what Mar
lowe is after. True, he is called in by
an aging millionaire to investigate
a bit of blackmail. This much is
clear. But not much else is after
Marlowe begins delving into the
affairs of the millionaire's two beau
tiful daughters, one a spoiled, slefisli
type who likes to gamble and the
other a spoiled, selfish type who not
only likes to gamble but Is something
of a dipsomaniac as well and goes
about sucking her thumb and gig

have a rather unfortunate habit oi
being on hand in a sodden condi
tion when members of the blackmai
ring dissolve business associations
meanwhile taking her picture at the
scene of the crime. Her big sistei
(Miss Bacall) gets about in the same
low circies. proving a trial to het
would-be protector by choosing tc
remain under the power of a big
shot gambler, who seems to be the
boss gangster.

The original blackmail attempt,
jit turns out when Marlowe gets to
work in his own inimitable way,
is only a small matter. The real
[problem, it soon becomes apparent,
[ is what happened to a fellow named
Regan, a hired companion of the
millionaire, who suddenly has be
come missing at the same time the
gambler's wife became missing. The
detective discovers that it is un
healthy to mention the name of
Regan, one fellow to mention It
being the chap invited to drink the
glass of poison. Marlowe himself,
for bringing up the matter, is set
upon once by a pair of handy men
who work both sides, one slugging
him in the midriff until he doubles
up. the other pounding him in the
kidneys until he straightens out
for the first to get back to work,
and another time he is poked in
the jaw by a man with a handful
of silver coins, an effective way of
being slugged.
These things arouse the detec
tive's suspicions. So the Regan
matter becomes something he must
solve. Also, he has fallen in love
with the less repulsive of these
whimsical heiresses he is supposed
to be protecting.

Bogart's role, of course, is one of
those things right in his line. Hisj.
playing ot Marlowe, the detective:
who always seems to have the situ

almost a shame that she is not more

does not matter at all.
