The Op is 190 pounds, around 5' 7", overweight, balding, in his 40s, and earnest in his task. I just don't picture Marky Mark that way.

Last night I read an Op story where Hammett described a gun shooting at our hero as "squirting lead", and I laughed because that was almost a silly 1950s cliche compared to most of the hard-boiled descriptions in these stories.
