The 1972 flick Chandler stars Warren Oates as a tired, almost down-and-out private eye named CHANDLER ("as in Raymond" his character explains for those of you who are hard of thinking), who falls in love with the ex-mistress of racketeer he's been hired to protect.

The film was panned by the few who ever saw it, with words like "messy," "sloppy," "ridiculous," "lethargic" and "incomprehensible" being tossed about, but as one of the few films where cult character actor fave Warren Oates got top billing, some fans may get a kick out of it.
