I have found it rather interesting reading the comments about Dick Powell as Marlowe. My brother and I are taking this course and we grew up on Dick Powell playing a Detective in his TV Series. That is how we were introduced to him and his work. It was not until more recent years, that I ever saw Dick Powell in one of his song and dance movies, and my initial reaction what "what a buffoon". It just seemed so out of character from the role that I first saw him.
