Elliot Gould was on the edge of the A list at the time that movie was made. He's had a great success in MASH. He wanted to be a leading man and he is a big fan of Chandler. I'm sure he was in on the decision to make this movie. This is a very common reason for making movies in Hollywood and very few are successful. "The greatest gift that God could gee us..." applys here, I think.
