Trouble Was His Business -- Raymond Chandler



I hate to say it, but as far as I can tell, The Times didn't review Chandler's second novel, "Farewell, My Lovely," at left. We did review the 1945 film, however.

Wonderful to see that the film version of 'Farewell, My Lovely' was appreciated in its time. First saw it on TV in the mid fifties, before knowing Dick Powell as boy singer in those Busby Berkeley classics of twenty years before. The seedy morality of Powell rivals that of Bogart and Mitchum. All excellent Chandler actors.

So much of 'Farewell' haunts Polansky's 'Chinatown'. that it is evident how much Robert Towne admired Chandler.

Viva Raymond Chandler.
