Howard Hawks United States, 1946

Jenny Coldpussy's rating of the film The Big Sleep

One of the first films exploring the idea of multiple universes. The story takes place in an alternate reality in which broke, fifty-something, puffy-eyed, chain-smoking private detectives are sexually irresistible to beautiful young girls. I liked it. Very ahead of its time.
