About

A 12 panel 16th/17th century lacquered Chinese screen - Spring Morning in the Han Palace - that I saw in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art in May 2013 provided both the inspiration and structure for this film, but when editing it I had in mind George Montgomery's film 'Lady in the Lake' in which the action is seen almost entirely through Marlowe's eyes. The line of dialogue that repeats 3 times is taken from Edward Dmytryk's 'Murder, My Sweet', in which Marlowe is played by Dick Powell.
