Reflections of Noir

Dick Powell plays an awesome Philip Marlowe in the 1944 noir Murder, My Sweet which is based on Raymond Chandler’s 1940 novel Farewell, My Lovely. I love this particular scene because the flashing lights and sinister reflections capture the aesthetic beautifully. What’s more, watching the thug Moose Malloy (played brilliantly by Mike Mazurki) appear in the reflection on the window was truly creepy while watching the film. I felt scared for Marlowe—brilliant stuff.
