From the Back Cover:

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 filmed novels have so far yielded ten movies. The author's extensive research included interviewing many of the Hollywood figures who were associated with Chandler and his films, including Lauren Bacall, Edward Dmytryk, Alfred Hitchcock, John Houseman, Fred MacMurray, Robert Montogomery, and Audrey Totter. 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.
