Forget the influence of Fitzgerald on Chandler or Macdonald. How about the influence of late 16th-century poet-playwrights on the PI genre? Had Christopher Marlowe, Edmund Spenser, and Thomas Kyd not been born or been otherwise named, whom would we be reading about? PI's named Nashe, Lyly, and Beaumont?
