The Saint ... Alfred Hitchcock More on the Greats Agatha Christie Nancy Drew Alfred Hitchcock Clue Chronicles Dashiell Hammett amuel Dashiell Hammett is recognized as the first master of hard-boiled detective fiction. His lean writing style, cynical characters and complex plots brought a new energy to pulp magazines then went on to define the genre in movies, radio and television where the private eye series became an entertainment staple. Hammett wrote more than 80 short stories and five novels: "Red Harvest" (1929), "The Dain Curse" (1929), "The Maltese Falcon" (1930), "The Glass Key" (1931) and "The Thin Man" (1934). He created tough guys Sam Spade and the Continental Op as well as debonaire sleuths Nick and Nora Charles. He wrote a comic strip ("Secret Agent X-9"), an original radio series ("The Fat Man") and worked on numerous scripts, often simply to polish dialogue. Hammett's crisp, colorful language brought gangster slang into everyday speech. Born in Maryland on May 27, 1894, Sam Hammett was raised in Baltimore and Philadelphia. He never finished high school. At 14, he went to work at a series of jobs to help support his family. At 21, he was hired by the Pinkerton National Detective Agency as an "operative." He traveled across the country on assignment from 1915 to 1921 with time off to serve stateside in the Motor Ambulance Corps. in World War I. A bout with tuberculosis

Una travolgente raccolta di racconti, incredibilmente inediti, di un autore che ha lasciato una traccia fortissima nella letteratura contemporanea noir.
Sebbene nel 1999, quando apparve l'edizione originale di questa raccolta di racconti giovanili, alcuni critici ne sottolinearono i limiti e, in alcuni casi, addirittura la stroncarono come un'operazione poco interessante,

14. Who2 Profile: Dashiell Hammett
DASHIELL HAMMETT • Author. Four Good Links, Vital Stats. DashiellHammett Fast way to get nofrills background on his life and work,
DASHIELL HAMMETT Author Hammett is often called the father of the modern American detective story. He was himself a private detective for Pinkerton's before turning to writing at age 28. Many of his subsequent stories featured the Continental Op, a nameless private detective who became the archetype for a generation of hard-boiled mystery story detectives. Among Hammett's best-known novels are The Dain Curse The Maltese Falcon (1930), and The Thin Man (1932). The hero of The Maltese Falcon, detective Sam Spade, is a famous fictional character and was played by Humphrey Bogart in the film version of the novel. Hammett had a long and feisty love relationship with author Lillian Hellman, which is sometimes blamed for his minimal writing output from 1934 until his death.

B C D ... Z by birthday from the calendar Credits and feedback Dashiell Hammett (1894-1961) - wrote his first fiction under the pseudonym Peter Collinson American novelist who also worked as a screenwriter in Hollywood. Hammett's best known books include THE MALTESE FALCON (1930), filmed three times. It introduced detective Sam Spade who is investigating the murder of his colleague detective Archer. Spade finds himself involved with an odd assortment of characters, all searching a black statue of a bird. Among them are the gorgeous red-head Brigid O'Shaughnessy, her employer, Fat Man Casper Gutman, Joel Cairo, an agent of Gutman, and Wilmer Cook, a nervous, trigger-happy bodyguard. "Samuel Spade's jaw was long and bony, his chin a jutting V under the more flexible V of his mouth. His nostrils curved back to make another smaller V. His yellow-grey eyes were horizontal. The V motif was picked up again by thickish brows rising outward from twin creases above a hooked nose, and his pale brown hair grew down - from high flat temples - in a point on his forehead. He looked rather pleasantly like a blond satan." (from The Maltese Falcon With Raymond Chandler Hammett represented the early realistic vein in detective stories. His tough heroes confront the violence with full knowledge of its corrupting potential. In his novels Hammett painted mean picture of the American society, where greed, brutality, and treachery are the major driving forces behind human actions.

From the original Maltese Falcon FAQ:
The Boring Bit
This FAQ isn't really made up of answers to Frequently Asked Questions. Rather, it consists of a series of statements that might be given as answers to possible questions about The Maltese Falcon Its genesis lay in my frustrated attempts to find information on the novel/film via the wonderfully over-hyped 'internet'. There was just nothing available. So in the best 'necessity is the mother of invention' tradition, I began to write what will become, I hope, what I would have wanted to have been able to find originally. Much of the information contained herein was gleaned from the sources cited in the bibliography.
