Dead Women Own Me

“Here’s what film noir is to me: it’s a righteous, generically American film movement that went from 1945 to 1958 and exposited one great theme. And that theme is, you’re fucked.”
— James Ellroy

The Long Goodbye (1973) Sterling Hayden and Elliot Gould
Roger Wade: You know what I wish you’d do? I wish you’d take that goddamn J.C. Penney tie off and settle down with me and you and me we’re gonna have an old fashioned man to man drinking party.
Philip Marlowe: Well, that’s okay with me but I’m not gonna take my tie off.
