[nice clean copy, both book and jacket essentially as-new]. INSCRIBED and SIGNED on the ffep by James Pepper (who wrote the Preface and was instrumental in bringing this unproduced screenplay of Chandler's into print) and additionally SIGNED by Robert B. Parker, who in his Introduction calls it "a good screenplay [that] would have made a good film" and has particular praise for "Chandler's dialogue, always pungent and interesting," as well as an "affection for his characters [that] gave Chandler's work a wholeness and credibility that few writers have exceeded and [that] is manifest in this screenplay as much as in any of the novels." Printed here is the second of two drafts completed by Chandler for Universal Pictures, dated March 24, 1948; Chandler later re-worked the story into his last published novel, also called "Playback." Signed by Associated
