RKO Radio Pictures released Murder, My Sweet on February 22, 1945. Edward Dmytryk directed the film which starred Dick Powell, Claire Trevor, and Anne Shirley.

‘Murder, My Sweet’ Movie Summary

Based on the Raymond Chandler book Farewell, My Lovely, Edward Dmytryk’s film, Murder, My Sweet begins with Philip Marlowe blindfolded at police headquarters recounting the night’s murders.

Days prior, Moose Malloy hired Marlowe to track down his old girlfriend Velma Valento. After eight years in prison, he no longer knows her whereabouts. Malloy takes Marlowe to The Florian; a nightclub Velma used to work at back in the day. Unfortunately, nobody remembers Velma, and the two men part ways so Marlowe can do some detecting.

Marlowe first heads to Jessie Florian’s home. She’s the widow of the Florian’s old owner, but she’s too drunk to give Marlowe much to go on. He does find Mrs Florian trying to hide a photo of Velma which he confiscates from her. Angry, Mrs Florian orders Marlowe to leave. While still on her porch, Marlowe catches a glimpse of her through her front door window calling someone on the phone in a panic.
