Statler as "Dashiell Chandler."

Raymond Chandler (1888-1959) was a popular novelist whose influence on modern crime fiction has been immense, particularly in the writing style and attitudes that much of the field has adopted over the last 60 years. Chandler's protagonist, Philip Marlowe, has become synonymous with the tradition of the hard-boiled private detective, along with Dashiell Hammett's Sam Spade. His novels include The Big Sleep (1939), Farewell, My Lovely (1940) and The Long Goodbye (1954).

References

  • The title of the first episode of Dog City, "The Big Squeak", was a reference to Hammett's novel. However, the plot itself more closely modeled Hammett's The Maltese Falcon.
  • The Bear in the Big Blue House episode "The Big Sleep" is another reference. In Chandler's novel, the phrase refers to death, but in the Bear episode, they really mean sleep.
  • Statler and Waldorf: From the Balcony episode 33 featured a film noir spoof, with Statler as Dashiell "Dash" Chandler, whose name is an amalgam of Chandler and Hammet, though the actual case is yet another Maltese Falcon take-off (with Sam the Eagle as the "falcon.")
