A Man Named Marlowe Episode 1: The Man & The Case

Posted on


Los Angeles, 1935. It’s the heart of the Great Depression and Philip Marlowe is broke. He’s contemplating whether he should pawn his .38, give up his Private Investigator’s license, and find another profession when he stops into his friend Lou’s automat for a sandwich. Lou tells him he’s got some work for Marlowe to do. It sounds like it’s Marlowe’s lucky day… or is it?

Closing Song:
