" To me, Chandler's novel reads like a suicide note.

 the Marlowe that would have been had he lived now.
 It wasn't titled The Long Goodbye for nothing."

Given that Altman worked with many top screenwriters, does anyone know who actually wrote the script of 'The Long Goodbye' and if Altman deviated from it ?
