Good efforts, all. But wrong. Keep trying.

Well, it wasn't correct after all, but I'm not following you on the 'vague' statement. I said a hint a day and so no mas until manana.

Sorry, Howard; these'll take more than Cliff's Notes to solve.

Default And we have a winner!

As one would have thought - 'twas Robert.

Samuel Spade’s jaw was long and bony, his chin a jutting v under the more flexible v of his mouth. His nostrils curved back to make another, smaller, v. His yellow-grey eyes were horizontal. The V motif was picked up again by thickish brows rising outward from twin creases above a hooked nose, and his pale brown hair grew down—from high flat temples—in a point on his forehead. He looked rather pleasantly like a blond Satan.

From Dashiell Hammett's novel, made into the 1941 film.

I guess I was dippy if I expected Robert to not be able to hunt down that last clue.

Still, I can't get the image of Bogart in his trenchcoat out of mind. A blond Satan, indeed.

Although one must admit the software did a pretty good job.


NOW - who is the woman?

And you must be on drugs ( gimme some ! ) to think anyone could have guessed that question...other than Robert.
