It appears no movie (listed there) used the character or at least the name "Linda Loring". -- Crush -----Original Message----- From: Jerry Friedman [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Wednesday, December 11, 2002 1:03 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: (urth) Two FLF details I carelessly deleted a post that mentioned Linda Loring. She's a character in at least two of Raymond Chandler's novels--Philip Marlowe is in love with her. Robert Mitchum played Marlowe in _The Big Sleep_ and _Farewell, My Lovely_, but Linda Loring isn't in those movies. The IMDB appears to search only for real people, not characters. Also, Unnamed City has a TV station called WROM (in Stubbs' questioning of Mrs. Baker). The only TV station by that name that I could find is or more likely was in Rome, Georgia--which can't be the setting of FLF, at least in our universe. Maybe a reference to a Rome that's more important to Wolfe? -- Jerry Friedman __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo! Mail Plus - Powerful. Affordable.
