Leigh Brackett

As the new Star Wars approaches, celebrate the 100th birthday of Leigh Brackett, SF author and first screenwriter of The Empire Strikes Back - and who also adapted Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep with William Faulkner for the 1946 Bogart and Bacall film, as well as The Long Goodbye with Eliot Gould twenty-seven years later, and wrote the screenplay for Rio Bravo among others as well. Her own SF and fantasy novels haven’t been filmed... something should be done about that.
