The famous line about badges that is in Sierra is better in the book.
Bookwise, I have now finished everything that Raymond Chandler had ever written that I could find (there were a few pieces that I had missed outside of his major work), I think everything that Dashiell Hammett wrote, though I cannot be absolutely sure, and all of Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer.
Chandler and Marlowe are the best and it is sad, once you've read everything Chandler wrote, to realize that's it. That's all there is. There will never be more and there should have been. There are things written in his name, there is at least one unfinished novel that someone else finished, but it's not the same.
It's like when Stieg Larsson died so young. There will never be any more real Lisbeth Salander and there should have been. The best Lisbeth Salander was Noomi Rapace in the 2009 Swedish film "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo". It was so much better than the American version. Watch it in the original Swedish with subtitles.
