Format: Hardcover
The premise to this screenplay, as conveyed by the circumstances and/or character development, is insufficiently convincing. And without the gaudy patter for the dialogue, it could be mistaken for an old packing crate and not a sleek and high-powered cabin cruiser. Perhaps this is because that although this is cited as the second and final draft, it may not represent what might have been with regard to the ethos and development of a main character (probably Killaine) to improve the story. Even so, I am compelled to conclude that the cost of the special and one-time-only deal that (as per the introduction) Raymond Chandler had with the studio, the studio chose to cut its losses and diplomatically walk away. Although this may be Raymond Chandler's finest example of his mastery of screenplay writing, it is not an example of his finest work.
