Big, The

L.A. private eye Phillip Marlowe takes on a blackmail case...and a trail peopled with murderers, pornographers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. But Raymond Chandler's legendary gumshoe solves it in hard-boiled style - and style is what The Big is all about. Director Howard Hawks serves up snappy character encounters (particularly those of Bogart and Lauren Bacall), brisk pace and atmosphere galore. This DVD doubles your pleasure with two versions of this whodunit supreme: the familiar 1946 Theatrical Version (Side A) full of re-shot scenes of incendiary Bogart/Bacall chemistry, and the rarer 1945 Prerelease Version (Side B), which recently resurfaced and whose plot and resolution are more linear.
