RE: RARA-AVIS: Playback (was Chandler/papa)

In 1985, Mysterious Press printed Raymond Chandler's Unknown Thriller: The Screenplay of Playback, with an intro by Robert B. Parker. I have it, but never read it, so I don't know how similar the novel is to it, but the jacket copy says, "A screenplay which he envisioned as being one of his most important works was for a movie to be called Playback. Unfortunately, the movie was never produced, and several years later he used the title and main female character for a novel. However, the script -- an excellent story peppered with memorable dialogue -- differed greatly from the novel."
