After the first half of the script was delivered in the first three weeks, Paramount scheduled shooting to begin in three weeks. However, the filming soon caught up with Chandler’s writing, which had slowed down due to his drinking. Also, he had a problem with the ending as the Department of the Navy refused to sanction the film as Chandler’s killer is revealed to be a disturbed navy veteran. When the head of production, Henry Ginsberg, offered Chandler a $5,000 “bonus” if he completed the script by the deadline, Chandler threatened to resign as he considered the money a bribe.
In 1841 Poe wrote “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and introduced the first fictional private detective, Chevalier C. Auguste Dupin. Dupin’s characteristics, intellectually gifted, eccentric, arrogant, superior, and overbearing, provided a prototype for subsequent classical detectives who took on cases out of interest, not economic necessity. Dupin is not part of ordinary society—he is above it. The most well-known example of this kind of crime fiction is Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, who first appeared in 1887.
