Jason's rating of the film Farewell, My Lovely

I would entreat you to note that Dick Richards made FAREWELL, MY LOVELY - which is a bizarre, madcap, and delightful quasi-masterpiece - the same year he made RAFFERTY AND THE GOLD DUST TWINS, which is, oh, say, my eleventh favourite American film of all time. No small feat! FAREWELL, though gussied-up, positively dressed to the nines, is nonetheless outrageously lackadaisical. It is a spree, but a loping one.
