As with "Farewell, My Lovely," The Times evidently did not review
Raymond Chandler's third novel, "High Window." When the movie was released as "The Brasher Doubloon," it was the bottom half of a double bill with the 1938 film "Alexander's Ragtime Band."


Philip Marlowe will be played by Fred "Walter Neff" MacMurray...


by Victor Mature...


by Dana "Mark McPherson" Andrews...


or George Montgomery.



The Times, Aug. 11, 1946: Humphrey Bogart, Dick Powell, George Montgomery and Robert Montgomery all play Raymond Chandler's Philip Marlowe.
