Full Cast Dramatisation
Ed Bishop stars as Philip Marlowe in these powerfully atmospheric BBC Radio dramatisations of Raymond Chandler's novels about the cynical, world-weary, wise-cracking shamus, whose honesty in a dishonest world sent him down the mean streets again and again in search of some kind of justice.
'The Big Sleep': General Sternwood's daughters came in both the colours of trouble - blonde and brunette - and they had all the usual vices. With four million dollars behind them, blackmail was only a matter of time. And blackmail can be murder.
'The High Window': Linda Conquest was very tough, very kissable and very missing, along with one very valuable old coin. But for some reason the interested parties didn't seem too interested in finding either of them. Especially when the trail led to the underworld and beyond. And by then, Marlowe was knee deep in dead men.
