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

I just finished watching "Miller's Crossing" for the second time. It's a good show, but you have to pay attention because if you miss any dialogue, you'll be lost. The first time I watched it I thought that there was so much of Red Harvest and The Glass Key in it that I was surprised the Coens weren't sued; after the second viewing, I can see the similarities, but the Coens tweaked them enough to make the story their own. I think it's the best modern example of a "Black Mask-style" movie, quite frankly, and probably the only "real" adaptation we'll see of either of the Hammett novels.
