Dick Powell retired his image as a boyish crooner with his acclaimed portrayal of Philip Marlowe in Murder, My Sweet. The big screen adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s Farewell, My Lovely was and is a critically acclaimed hit – thanks in no small part to Powell’s performance. Murder, My Sweet recast Powell as a cinematic tough guy and it paved the way for future gumshoe roles on screen and radio. We’ll hear Dick Powell recreate the film, along with Mary Astor and Mike Mazurki, in Hollywood Star Time (originally aired on CBS on June 8, 1946).
