Could never completely understand what was going on in that movie, no matter how many times I saw it. But after a while, I was not bothered by things like that.

Risa: From the Wikipedia entry:
"The Big Sleep is known for its convoluted plot. During filming, allegedly neither the director nor the screenwriters knew whether chauffeur Owen Taylor was murdered or had killed himself. They sent a cable to [Raymond] Chandler, who told a friend in a later letter: 'They sent me a wire ... asking me, and dammit I didn't know either.'"

Thanks, Nancy, for starting my day with a badly-needed laugh. Excellent post! --bob

Risa, I hope you at least enjoyed watching the movie every time. Or were you merely watching it over and over in hopes of understanding it next time?

I always think of baby spiders when I think of The Big Sleep. That's about all I can remember.
