The Chandlers, finally together
If you're a Raymond Chandler fan, you'll find this tidbit of interest: he and his beloved wife have finally been buried together long after their deaths. Chandler, of course, is the bard of L.A. and paladin private eyes, as well as the credited screenwriter on two of my favorite classics, Double Indemnity and Strangers on a Train, although one imagines that Billy Wilder was the dominant team member on the former. Anyhow, if this advice from Chandler to aspiring writers isn't inspiring, I don't know what is: "If in doubt, have three guys come through the door with guns."
