Elliott Gould stars as private investigator Philip Marlowe in Altman’s slick, 1970’s update of the Raymond Chandler classic. By the time Gould returned to working with Robert Altman, he had earned a reputation in Hollywood for his erratic behavior and lackluster box office performance. The Long Goodbye, however, catapulted him back into the spotlight in what may be his finest role. The affable, somnolent Marlowe as played by Gould is a perfect anti-hero for the Nixon era.
