I'm pretty sure her article was reprinted in Lee Server's Big Book of Noir (pretty sure that's where I read it). And if you look it up in the archives, last time this argument rolled around, I posted some direct quotes of Altman's on his interests and conception of the movie, how it was inspired by Raymond Chandler Speaking and how he split Chandler between the Marlowe and Roger Wade (a name which some screenwriter has used as a pseudonym) characters.
