Her first Hawks film was the follow-up to TH&HN, THE BIG SLEEP. Hawks wanted Brackett because he's read her PI novel, NO GOOD FROM A CORPSE, and liked her way with Chandler-like prose, so he got in contact with her and arranged an interview. Reportedly, he was very surprised when she reported for the interview and turned out to be a woman. He'd thought Leigh Brackett was a man.
