Raymond Chandler's The Long Goodbye, the 1973 Robert Altman homage to crime film noir ("Hi! I'm high-powered director Robert Altman, and I'm here on location filming my latest high-powered movie, 'The Long Goodbye!'"; "The film is full of fun-murder, maiming, drunkenness, infidelity, topless yoga freaks, four-letter words- EVERYTHING! Like my first big success, M*A*S*H, it's got the same key ingredient!"; "What's that?"; "Good taste!"; "Here's our star Elliott Gould! Elliott plays Phillip Marlowe, a hard-bitten cynical private eye trying to solve an incredible mystery!"; "With so many other actors around, why did you pick me??"; "That's the mystery!"; "This is Nina van Pallandt who portrays a femme fatale involved in a deceptive plot of shadowy intrigue!"; "How do you want me to play it?"; "From memory!"; "And here's Jim Bouton in the role of Terry Lennox, a small-time mug! You'll enjoy watching Jim strike out on a new career!"; "Strike out?? Is that a clever reference to my one-time skill as a baseball pitcher??"; "No, as an actor!"; "Finally we've got Sterling Hayden as a deranged novelist, 'Laugh-In's' Henry Gibson as a quack and psychiatrist and Mark Rydell as a sadistic mobster who disfigures helpless women!"; "Like I said 'The Long Goodbye' is a fun movie!"; "'I have two friends in the world. One is a cat. The other is a murderer.' -Elliott Gould as Philip Marlowe"; "'Nothing says goodbye like a bullet...'- Philip Marlowe"; "*Philip Marlowe - The greatest of all 'private eye' characters - created by Raymond Chandler"; "Based on the novel by Raymond Chandler"; with music by John Williams) starring Elliott Gould, Nina Van Pallandt, Sterling Hayden, Mark Rydell, Henry Gibson, David Arkin, Jim Bouton, and Arnold Schwarzenegger (uncredited in his second movie role as a hood!). Note that this film was first released in early 1973 but withdrawn shortly after so that the marketing could be revised and new posters created for a late 1973 release.
