Hammett: Call Me Ned

Terry Zobeck, the guy watching Perry Mason, pops in a footnote to today’s main post to tell us:

“Latimer did not keep up the Hammett schtick of Ned Beaumont, always Ned Beaumont.

“The character usually was referred to simply as Ned. A couple of times.

“I noticed it and thought, as you did: Too much for TV.”
