"Speaking of Hammett, I'm watching Miller's Crossing right now, which I've heard is based on RED HARVEST. I somehow thought it was a grade B movie, but it seems pretty classy. Haven't exactly found the parallel between the book and the movie yet, other than a buttload of gangster violence."

I always thought the Coen brothers drew more from Glass Key than Red Harvest for that movie, but it is definitely their homage to Hammett
(Blood Simple is their James M Cain movie, Big Lewbowski their Chandler,
