A Totalled Dick

I'm raddled, worn out and unshaven
Drug-addled, torn up, weak and craven            
I've been battered and beat
Till I'm dead on my feet
And can't paddle shit creek to safe haven.

David Cairns 

Private detective Philip Marlowe (Dick Powell) is put through the ringer in Murder My Sweet (Edward Dmytryk, 1944).
