                                                                             GUMSHOE (1971). Rated 8/10.

Albert Finney is a bingo caller. He fantasises about being Humphrey Bogart. Giving a Sam Spade type narration and wearing a trenchcoat. He trawls greasy spoon cafes and darkened alleyways on the trail of a character called the Fat Man. This film comes across as both a spoof and a homage to the 1940s private eye movies. The music is also evocative of that period. This is a crime comedy which gives respect to the genre that it's spoofing.
