The Daily Sketch Goes Noir continues with a quote from Raymond Chandler‘s 1940’s novel “Farewell, My Lovely” which feature second appearance of Chandler‘s hard-boiled PI Philip Marlowe.
The novel was adapted to film a total of three times; first in 1942 as “The Falcon Takes Over” with George Sanders in the role of Marlowe (Who name they changed for some odd reason to gentleman sleuth Gay Lawrence. What is up with that? Anyone who’s read Hammett’s Marlowe knows he ain’t no gentlemen.), then again adapted in 1944 as “Murder, My Sweet” starring Dick Powell as Marlowe and adapted once more in 1975 under it’s true name “Farewell, My Lovely” starring Robert Mitchum as Marlowe.
Anyway, though not in any of the film adaption of the novel, I used a picture of Marilyn Monroe as the basis for this sketch.
Have a happy,
