It took some time for Robert Altman’s The Long Goodbye, based on Raymond Chandler’s 1953 novel of the same name, to reach the hearts and minds of the critics and the audience. After a shaky start, this neo-noir masterpiece, written by The Big Sleep co-writer Leigh Brackett, has gained cult status over the years and is now regarded as something a person infatuated with the world of film simply must put on their bucket list. Dark and full of mystery, with Elliot Gould’s role of a lifetime, The Long Goodbye is an unwavering proof of Altman’s genius that would be a crime to miss, and here’s Brackett’s invaluable script available for your pleasure and education.
