Some Facts
Born on the exact same day as French writer Louis-Ferdinand Céline.
Is the namesake of one of the pre-cogs in Minority Report (2002).
A former private detective for the Pinkrton Detective Agency, he went on to set the format for hard-boiled literature.
Is portrayed by Sam Shepard in Dash and Lilly (1999).
Director George Lucas tipped his hat to Hammett by naming one of his companies "Black Falcon" after the black bird in "The Maltese Falcon" (also the Star Wars space ship "The Millenium Falcon"). The code name for Star Wars' "Return of the Jedi" was "Blue Harvest", a reference to Hammett's "Red Harvest".
