    We sure can, but this whole thread has been about whether Angie fits comfortably on the pile of hard-boiled fictional characters, not about whether other hard-boiled characters pursued false gods and sacrificed love. The Maltese Falcon is not Casablanca and vice versa, and I'm sure you can't be questioning whether Sam Spade is a hard-boiled character, so in the words of Tina Turner, "What's Love Got To Do With It?"
