If you had entered her name into the search window and clicked [GO!], this would have been the result, slightly edited for formatting:

    Leigh Brackett

    Writer - filmography

    (1980s) (1970s) (1960s) (1950s) (1940s)

    1.Empire Strikes Back, The (1980)
     ... aka Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back

And directly below Faulkner's name, a prominent yellow button labeled [Show More]. If you clicked on that button, the rest of the credits would have appeared:

   Writing credits (in credits order) Raymond Chandler (novel)

   William Faulkner &
   Leigh Brackett &
   Jules Furthman
