'The Big Sleep' is a 1918 movie directed by John Barrymore. The story centers on the American Civil War and a mysterious assassin known as Hester Prynne. This film received several Oscar nominations for its production values and acting.
It also starred Hayden Comeau, Louise Brooks, Charlton Heston, Bette Davis, Abbie Cornish, and John Carradine. The series was produced by the Ziegfeld Follies and Paramount Pictures. It was released in November of 1918, which is the first month of World War I.
The movie was based on a novel by the same name by the French author G.E. Phileb Fichte. The plot was the following: a rich widow hires Hester Prynne to take out her husband, who is in the army; the sadistic Hester plots to murder him, but instead kills her hired assassin.
In order to get a huge amount of publicity for the movie, MGM did a different sort of publicity stunt. They painted half of the English Steps at Buckingham Palace red, yellow, and black, with the words "HAY! You Suck!"
The film, which has been re-released several times, was inspired by the work of Chuck Jones, who used black and white to give it the comic edge. The director of photography for the film was Gregory Nicotero, while the editor was Norman Taurog.
The whole story was set in a hotel in England, known as "The Rose," which served as the setting for the movie. The production and direction were handled by Fred Zinnemann, who did the bulk of the heavy lifting of post-production work on the picture. The cinematographer was Richard Beymer, while the sound was done by David Lewis.
'The Big Sleep' features many scenes of beautiful architecture, and the music was composed by Jule Styne. The film was a big success, making $3 million in its theatrical run. Of course, it didn't fare too well at the box office when it was re-released in the late '70s, but many people hold on to it today.
The movie is a fascinating glimpse into the world of the time. In addition to the famous scene in which Hester Prynne tries to kill her hired assassin, there are many other scenes that are worth watching. For more information about the movie, check out its official website.
