RE: The Big Sleep 1978 with Robert Mitchum...and

...and that's it....I think. It was a 'Phillip Marlow' novel written by Raymond Chandler. A popular writer of detective novels.

Mitchum starred in another movie based on a Chandler novel; Farewell My Lovely. 1975.

IIRC I enjoyed both of the Mitchum films noted. The screen play on The Big Sleep differs quite a lot from the earlier Bogart/Bacall version.

fwiw Mitchum did another detective film, this time based in Japan, called "The Yakuza". 1974. A Harry Kilmer novel. I'm not sure this movie holds up well but at the time I found it to be an exciting glimpse into Japanese gangster culture. Directed by Sydney Pollack. That movie was/is wicked and sobering in a dismembering sort of way. ;^)

Good stuff.
