Marlowe is probably more of a familiar name than the other three and probably with more of a romantic slant to satisfy the female audience. But Altman proved that the character can easily  adapt to  a contemporary ambience. No, I think what we need is a more anarchist version of Mike Hammer, with no concession to romanticism and PC (namely, no Velda). Those three characters you name are still in the Marlowe's mould. Without Chandler's stylistic gifts.

been done with Hammer https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0050039/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

Oh, come on. I do not mean resuscitate a character. I mean to use it like it has never been done before, adapting it to the new times and without the limits of censorship.

They tried it badly with Armand Assante. The window of opportunity was 1970-80-90s now too much PC to contend with for films. Maybe a mini series.

No, but given an opportunity, I'd love to.

Noir City Boston starts Friday. They have kind of a cool theme, films celebrating their 75th anniversaries. Every film on the program was released in 1948: https://brattlefilm.org/film-series/noir-city-boston-2023/?fbclid=IwAR0tj1VfxgJY8SqNvNSkiqmBHezzsnFIXCbOM13svluvJks81cCe9mzqY-E

Great thread! Loved reading everyone's thoughts and insights on these film-noir classics. If I can add to the discussion, I highly recommend checking out Otto Preminger?s ?Laura? from 1944. It?s a quintessential noir film with a very cool plot and all round a great character study. Gene Tierney's performance is stellar, and the score really amps the eerie atmosphere. Blu-Ray is also a stand out pic and audio quality DTS-HD MA
