"Yojimbo", which was influenced by Hammett's "Red Harvest" how's that for a complex lineage? >>

I *knew* there was a reason it felt familiar! The tough-guy-protecter-of-dames figure has been around the block a bit, I'd say, and Willis does a good stand-in for Clint. Somehow, even in this PC age, I can't imagine a woman playing this sort of role. <g>
