Murder, My Sweet Dreams
From my bed I am given the tour
Of a Bedlam without a brochure
Where bizarre is on tap
Fairly far off the map
In my head or for real I'm not sure.
Dick Powell encounters Otto Kruger's floating head in Murder My Sweet (Edward Dmytryk, 1944), an adaptation of Raymond Chandler's detective novel, Farewell My Lovely.
