"Sin City" is infested with criminals, crooked cops and sexy dames, some searching for vengeance, some for redemption and others, both. The film incorporates storylines from three of Miller's graphic novels including 'Sin City,' which launched the long-running, critically acclaimed series, as well as 'That Yellow Bastard' and 'The Big Fat Kill.' Where Hartigan, a cop with a bum ticker and a vow to protect stripper Nancy. Marv, the outcast misanthrope, is on a mission to avenge the death of his one true love, Goldie; there's also Dwight, the clandestine love of Shelley who spends his nights defending Gail and her Old Towne girls from Jackie Boy, a dirty cop with a penchant for violence.
Hell of a way to end a partnership.

Based on the graphic novels "Sin City" (the first graphic novel was just called "Sin City;" this story has been renamed "The Hard Good-Bye" by Miller), "The Big Fat Kill" and "That Yellow Bastard", by Frank Miller. The opening footage with Josh Hartnett and Marley Shelton is from the Sin City short story "The Customer is Always Right" from the "Babe Wore Red" collection. However, the epilogue featuring Hartnett and Alexis Bledel is an original scene written specifically for the movie.
Directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller planned each shot in the movie by using the panels from the original book as storyboard.
While the three stories in the film are based on "The Hard Goodbye," "The Big Fat Kill" and "That Yellow Bastard" as well as the short "The Customer is Always Right" there is a very brief scene taken from the story "A Dame to Kill For," in which Dwight (Clive Owen) thinks in a voice over in Kadie's Bar how Marv "would have been okay if he'd been born a couple of thousand years ago."
The cover of the Sin City book "Booze, Broads, and Bullets", can be seen periodically throughout the movie. Its most notable appearance is on the cover of the matchbook that Hartigan picks up to locate Nancy; it is also seen in the background of the strip club in the very next scene as Hartigan first enters (to the right as a poster).
