I've done this before, but I should point out that Dylan's EMPIRE BURLESQUE contains a slew of references to THE MALTESE FALCON. There's actually a list of some of the references on my site.

Hmmmm....maybe Dylan could be in this RED HARVEST musical. I wonder if he can dance? Let's just hope he doesn't wear tights....

And hey, isn't Chandler more or less lyrical and romantic, and on more than one occasion, after a run-in with the wrong end of a blackjack, somewhat hallucinatory?

Next week: Hard-boiled interior decorating.
