RARA-AVIS: About Altman: a short comment

I've always thought that the idea behind Altman's THE LONG GOODBYE and Brackett's screenplay behind that was that it would've been what Chandler himself had written if he'd lived to the seventies (or indeed having created most of his work then).

I like the film very much, save for the ending, which is too funny for the rest of the film. Why the harmonica? It's not necessary.
