Roger, 



You are correct.  The Raymond Chandler Omnibus was published in the ML in April 1980.

Dear John: 

I did see the dates, and I guess I'm wrong, but I thought ML did a Giant reissue of the four Knopf Chandler novels, originally published as a Knopf omnibus book in 1964--_The Big Sleep; Farewell, My Lovely; The High Window; The Lady in the Lake. My sense was that the ML book was in the 1960's. I know I had the book, but like many book lenders, I lose things when I let others borrow, so I don't have it to hand. I wasn't referring to the one you mention, though I knew about it. 

I defer to your expertise. 

Best, 


Roger 


Roger, "The Big Sleep" is a Bogart Movie, but I didn't count it since it wasn't published by ML until 1995, when it was paired with "Farewell My Lovely", replacing "The Lady In the Lake" in the earlier ML chandler volume, #377.

_The Big Sleep_ (Raymond Chandler) 






While watching the Bogart Film festival on the Classic Movie Channel this morning, I remarked to my movie-buff brother in law that both the film that was ending (Treasure of the Sierra Madre) and the one that was beginning (Maltese Falcoln) were Modern Library titles.  I started wondering what other Bogart movies are based on works included in the Modern Library, 1917-1970.  I count six, including the two above.  
  
Can you name the other four?  
  
Even better, can you indentify others?
