Tue, 12 Jan 1999 00:55:32 -0600 (CST) Ran across a couple of websites relating to specific hard-boiled titles:

On The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon, and The Killer Inside Me: backgrounds
and discussion questions at this Vintage Books site:
<http://wwww. timesbooks.com/vintage/read/blacklizard/>

On the novel and film, The Maltese Falcon: background and discussion
activities at this Turner Classic Movie site, set up for educators teaching
"novels into film."

[The latter suggests that it might be an interesting activity to put Spade
on trial, to determine whether he violates contemporary standards of sexual
harrassment. Uh, is there any doubt? What then?]
