Oh, I dunno. "Pearls Are A Nuisance," an early short story, is decidedly out of character w/ Chandler's later work, and the hero can hardly be called a proto-Marlowe. His flatnose helper (I've forgotten both characters names) does remind one a little (very little) of the later Moose Malone, however. Anyone who wants hard proof of Chandler's Dulwich education owes it to himself to read "Pearls." PB
