Kevin Smith's post about Poodle Springs is right on the mark.
Parker was commissioned by Chandler's estate to complete THE POODLE
SPRINGS STORY and to write PERCHANCE TO DREAM. Chandler had written the
first four chapters/thirten pages of POODLE SPRINGS, and Parker picked
up from there. In several interviews Parker has said that, because
Chandler never outlined in advance, he followed the same practice in
Parker didn't like doing the two books and wasn't pleased with
Stoppard's adaption for the HBO movie.
