Salon features an article by Allan Barra on Hammett's RED HARVEST, which is called "one of the most influential American novels of the 20th century." Barra focuses on the many aborted attempts to bring the novel to the screen and the surprising number of unofficial adaptations, the most recent being HBO's DEADWOOD.

Much of the article's content will be familiar to Rara Avians, but it's still an interesting read. I wouldn't have minded a mention of Seijun Suzuki's YOUTH OF THE BEAST, just out on DVD and which borrows liberally from Hammett.

You can find the article here, but as always with Salon you'll have to sit through an ad first:
