Someone needs to make a movie called “The Dork Knight Returns” in which Batman goes full Elon Musk and gets so high on his own PR that he starts making increasingly horrible choices until the people of Gotham have to put him down.
Powers Booth did in the 80s, but I haven’t seen it and I don’t know anyone who has because it’s one of those older HBO shows that HBO doesn’t show. I’ve been meaning to track it down one of these years.
While Raymond Chandler was born in the US (1888), his mother was Irish and " moved them to the area of Upper Norwood in what is now the London Borough of Croydon, England in 1900. Formally educated in England, he moved back to America in 1912. So a Marlowe with a slight Irish accent is not beyond the pale. While Bogart essayed the most memorable Marlowe in “The Big Sleep” it is well known that Chandler would have preferred Cary Grant (!) in the role. I hope Liam’s portrayal comes off better than that of Dick Powell or the lugubrious Robert Mitchum (who was about twenty years too late in being cast as Chandler’s Detective in Shining Armor).
I have that on DVD, but have yet to watch it. It’s encoded for a different region. I know there are ways around that, but solving it’s one more thing on the stack of things to do when I can make more time.
