A note rolled in just now from longtime guest blogger Terry Zobeck, always trying to keep the Hammett facts straight. He spotted a wrong detail in the Morgan Holmes bit about what kind of .32s the Op carried in “Corkscrew” — and I thought, yeah, that one nagged at my memory even as I quickly threw the link up.
