    Raymond Chandler (1888-1959) was a popular American-British crime and mystery writer. All but one of his seven novels have been made into movies, including The Little Sister (titled Marlowe) which was adapted in 1969. Ironically, Chandler was inspired by his general dislike of and experiences with Hollywood and the entertainment industry to write The Little Sister, which takes place in late 1940s Los Angeles.
