    And who says a stoned surfer boy can't be hard boiled? Kookie,lend me your comb.

    It seemed pretty far fetched to me, and very far afield from Chandler's novel and it's intent. I have no problem with Altman making his own statement. Let him come up with his own private detective and his own title. Don't wrap a bill of good in Raymond Chandler because you know I'll buy it. That makes me a lot less curious about your next picture.
