He collaborated on the script for THE BIG SLEEP, he didn't write it. Among those with whom he worked on it was Leigh Brackett, a good writer in her own right (who won an Oscar for her work on the script for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, and also worked on the script for Altman's LONG GOODBYE, if memory serves correctly).
