Set in 1963, an aging Philip Marlowe (James Caan) is supposedly giving up his wild times to get married to a younger socialite (Dina Meyer). However, as might be expected crime follows Marlowe as he is soon mixed up in blackmail and murders as a sleazy photographer (David Keith) threatens to expose photos of a former stripper (La Joy Farr) who is now running with a billionaire. As things progress, he soon realizes that his new wife's father (Joe Don Baker) is also involved.

I'll see you tonight.
Look, Mrs. Marlowe, I'm just a lug. There are things I can do, like shoot, I can keep my word, I can tail a guy who's walking backwards, I can open a door into a dark room where there's trouble waiting... and so, I do them. I find work that fits what I do. I get a hundred dollars a day. I can't be bought or pushed. Not even for love.
