Re your question below:
"So would Red Harvest, The Big Sleep, Postman Always Rings Twice, etc.
maybe even The Dain Curse."
RED HARVEST. Yes.
THE DAIN CURSE. Yes.
THE BIG SLEEP. Maybe.
THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE. I'd say no, but I won't argue if you feel it qualifies. It's kind of like whether James Bond is hard-boiled or not. You can agree on the definition, but not on whether a particular example fits.
