Bill D asked:
"Does anyone know if Chandler mentions Brackett in his
letters, or if she talks about meeting him, or how well they
knew each other back in the '40s and '50s? They must have met
when Chandler was in Hollywood."
The only mention of Brackett in the two volumes of Chandler's
letters I own was a passing reference to her as the "girl"
who wrote the screenplay of The Big Sleep (about which he
said, "'Twill do").
In Jon Tuska's The Detective in Hollywood, Brackett is quoted
"I met Chandler only once." She does not elaborate.
