Two Fisted Tuesdays with Philip Marlowe - The Old Acquaintance

Welcome to Two Fisted Tuesdays, Dieselpunks' weekly beat on the mean streets.

We're listening to The Adventures of Philip Marlowe until we either run out of ammo or until poor Philip lays down for the big sleep.

Starring Gerald Mohr and starting with the famous lines, "Get this and get it straight! Crime is a sucker's road and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison or the grave. There's no other way, but they never learn." The Adventures of Philip Marlowe runs about 25 minutes without commercials.

When it started, a girl's wedding and New Year's Eve were only six hours away. And I didn't think the bride-to-be would make either one of them. That was before I ran up against a slot machine operator, the escaped convict and above all, the old acquaintance.

Noir quote of the week
