George Montgomery makes a doltish Philip Marlowe in this 1947 Fox B picture, based on Raymond Chandler’s The High Window. The resourceful John Brahm (The Lodger) spins a few moody compositions, but the film never transcends its status as a quickie made to cash in on the success of The Big Sleep. With Nancy Guild, Florence Bates, and Fritz Kortner.
