Odds and Ends

Philip Marlowe’s… Photo Noir?


Philip Marlowe is the quintessential hardboiled detective of American noir, and Humphrey Bogart, who played the hard-drinking and quick-witted gumshoe in “The Big Sleep,” is the quintessential Philip Marlowe. But beyond Bogart, the character of Marlowe continues on, collecting many interpretations and portrayals along the way.

Created by crime fiction writer Raymond Chandler, Philip Marlowe is a product of the pulp magazines of the 1930s. Chandler, who became a professional writer late in his life, developed his style by penning short stories for publications like Black Mask and Detective Fiction Weekly. The more and more he wrote stories for the pulps, the more and more a singular character evolved from the work: a tough private investigator with a stoic demeanor, a sharp tongue, a taste for liquor, and deep inner moral compass to keep him from losing his cool or falling for femme fatales.
