Most widely held works by Leigh Brackett
The big sleep by Howard Hawks ( Visual )
59 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,960 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Private detective Philip Marlowe is hired by the wealthy General Sternwood to expose a blackmailer who is holding compromising photos of Sternwood's daughter. The film evokes the chaotic underworld of Chandler's novel through setting and visualisation rather than plot. The complexities of the narrative are still present, but they no longer constitute the main ground against which the noir figure of Marlowe is defined. By stressing characteristics and visual style rather than events, it ultimately reduces a story line that is irretrievably tangled, to minor significance. The definitive Bogart-Becall vehicle, the film plays heavily on the sexual tension between the two actors, expressed primarily through their double entendre-loaded banter and their non-verbal expressions of sympathy that quickly undermine the initial antagonism of the characters

The long goodbye by Robert Altman ( Visual )
14 editions published between 1972 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For The Long Goodbye, Robert Altman successfully transports Philip Marlowe, incarnated by Elliott Gould, to the over-privileged, full-color 70s. Marlowe is lonely and shabby, yet does not seem an anachronism in the contemporary world. Unlike Bogart's Marlowe, this is a not especially tough Marlowe. He's a bright, conscientiously solemn nut, a guy who hopes for the best but expects the worst. This particular Philip Marlowe, despite evidence to the contrary, persists in believing that not all relationships need be opportunistic or squalid

In the small Texas town of Rio Bravo, law and order is maintained by three unlikely enforcers: hard-boiled sheriff Chance; former quick draw artist Dude, now gone drunk and disheveled; and the crippled, wisecracking Stumpy, who patrols the jail with a shotgun. The arrest and incarceration of Joe Burdette for murder has set these three at odds with his brother, corrupt and wealthy landowner Nathan Burdette. Nathan assembles a force of hired guns to spring Joe, while Chance enlists hotshot gunslinger Colorado. Complications arise in the form of Feathers -- not the usual saloon floozy but a competent professional gambler accustomed to sparring with men -- who has an eye for Chance
