  • Marlowe is a neo-noir movie starring James Garner as Raymond Chandler's private detective Philip Marlowe. Directed by Paul Bogart, the mystery film was written by Stirling Silliphant based on Chandler's 1949 novel The Little Sister. The supporting cast includes Bruce Lee, Gayle Hunnicutt, Rita Moreno, Sharon Farrell, Carroll O'Connor and Jackie Coogan. The film foreshadowed James Garner's second Los Angeles P.I. character Jim Rockford in The Rockford Files. Many of the wisecracking Marlowe lines incorporated by Silliphant for this movie were taken directly from Chandler's novel. Silliphant is best known for his Academy Award-winning screenplay for In the Heat of the Night and creating the television series Route 66 and Naked City. This movie introduced martial arts legend Bruce Lee to many American film viewers. The film's title song "Little Sister" is provided by the group Orpheus.
