The Long Goodbye (1973)

Great poster - great movie..
What an interesting thing to bring the classic noir into the gritty '70s and mix it up just right.
That's exactly what Robert Altman did with his adaptation of Raymond Chandler's Phillip Marlowe in THE LONG GOODBYE.
Personally, I didn't think Elliot Gould would pull it off, but this is just another of many instances when I'm happy to be way wrong. Took a while to recognize Sterling Hayden, and Marlowe's car was a very nice touch, as were a lot of the "here he is in the nineteen-seventies" moments.
Go watch it's worth it.
