!!Adaptations without their own pages provide examples of:

* POVCam: The 1947 film version of ''Lady in the Lake'', directed by and starring Creator/RobertMontgomery, was filmed almost entirely in P.O.V. Cam to imitate the novel's first-person narration. Just so the film's Big Name Star was not totally unseen, he appears in bridging sequences and is seen whenever Marlowe looks into a mirror.

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: In ''Marlowe'' (1969), Philip Marlowe, at the scene of a murder, checks that a gun has been fired by putting the muzzle under his nose and smelling it. Yes, his finger isn't on the trigger, but he certainly should know better.
* BadassInANiceSuit: The title character aside, there is Winslow Wong in the 1969 version. When Marlowe refuses his Bribe, [[PersonOfMassDestruction Winslow tears apart his office with his bare hands.]] It helps that Wong is played by Creator/BruceLee prior to his Hong Kong action films.

'''Philip Marlowe''' is the creation of Creator/RaymondChandler, and an original TropeCodifier of the [[HardboiledDetective Hardboiled]] PrivateDetective archetype. While his first official appearance was in the 1939 novel ''Literature/TheBigSleep,'' Chandler later adapted some of his short stories about similar detectives into longer novels.
