Directed by the innovative Robert Altman, "The Long Goodbye" is a neo-noir mystery that thrusts Raymond Chandler's iconic detective Philip Marlowe into the turbulent 1970 sun-soaked Los Angeles. Elliott Gould takes on the role of Marlowe, a wisecracking and anachronistic detective navigating a world of shifting morals and elusive truths.
In 2021, The Long Goodbye was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
