RARA-AVIS: Miller's Crossing = The Glass Key??

I finally got around to watching the Coen brothers' MILLER'S CROSSING, which I'd been told was a tribute to Hammett, particular his first novel, RED HARVEST.

To me, it seemed much more than a tribute: it seemed to be a pretty faithful adaptation of THE GLASS KEY.

Don't get me wrong, I liked the movie, but I was stunned not to find a
"based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett" line in the credits.

Apologies if we've talked about this before, but did others have the same impression?
