Really hate that Chandler dialogue. Reminds me of Parker's Spenser books. Pages of one or two word comments. Apparently publishers didn't care about the cost of paper then. It's true that a very few people (the silent John Wayne types) communicate in monosyllables, but most normal people are a bit more talkative. I don't see that it adds much to the forward movement of the plot in any case.
