Here I agree with Juri. Made In USA (1966) by Godard, was loosely based on The Jugger- a Parker novel by R. Stark Most of the fictitious characters appearing in that film had famous names taken from Hollywood's actors and directors, as well as from the American political scene.

The Big Sleep- has already too many remakes or
"inspired by..." films!!
