About this title

Synopsis:

Introduction: The private detective has long been a staple of both literature and films. From the pages of numerous stories and the celluloid of a host of films, countless detectives have gone forth to solve murders and seek justice. The best way to study this group of private eyes is to examine the prototypes from which most of them came. Two of the most famous private detective prototypes in literature and film are Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe. Their creators, Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, were among the most popular fiction writers of their day. And two films starring their creations, The Maltese Falcon and the Big Sleep, remain today the two best private detective adventures ever produced.
