it was amazing
bookshelves: mysteries

I probably like this one so much b/c Robert Altman made a film version in 1973 'modernized' to bring it into 'hippie' times & starring Elliott Gould as Detective Philip Marlowe. It's perhaps somewhat surprising that 'Hollywood' & I coincide in our tastes in mystery writers: many films have been made of Hammett & Chandler stories. There's even a whole bk called "Raymond Chandler & Film" wch I have in my library but haven't read yet. At least 2 novels by Patricia Highsmith & 2 by James Ellroy have been turned into films too.
