About the book:

Four years after writing his first novel, THE BIG SLEEP, Raymond Chandler found himself sitting in an office at Paramount Studios earning a weekly salary that amounted to almost half of what he had received for the film rights to his second novel, FAREWELL MY LOVELY. Despite the considerable rewards, he was always uncertain, often disgruntled, never at ease. RAYMOND CHANDLER IN HOLLYWOOD is an entertaining and comprehensive assessment of Chandler's turbulent association with Hollywood, both as a screenwriter whose credits included DOUBLE INDEMNITY, THE BLUE DAHLIA, and STRANGERS ON A TRAIN and as the provider of source material - his six filmmed novels have so far yielded ten movies. Illustrated with rare stills, posters, and location photographs, this book provides a special insight into the work of the world's most acclaimed writer of detective fiction.
