RARA-AVIS: Poodle puddle

pabergin (pabergin@gte.net)
Sun, 28 Mar 1999 23:29:13 -0500 "Poodle Springs" was a pastiche put together by Robt B Parker with the
acquiescence of the Chandler literary estate.

As is frequently -- one is tempted to say ALWAYS -- the case, the voice that
emerged was less Chandler's than that of the idolator.

I am not surprised to learn that the movie (of which I had not heard) was no
more successful than the novel, which was, frankly, dreadful.
