In what way was Marlowe selfish in The Maltese Falcon? --Ed Poor Talk 16:26, 18 June 2009 (EDT)

Good point. I suppose it could be the flippant way he treated Archer's death, but he did cast out Miss O'Shaughnessy (sp?) even though he admitted he may have loved her. While I wouldn't characterize him as "selfish" I would say he was driven and focused. Uncouth also seems strange, because Marlowe is very proper with Gutman and others when he needs to be, he's just unpredictable.

I took my username from this character:) Marlowe 16:36, 18 June 2009 (EDT)

Wasn't there a line in the movie about him doing "such unpredictable things"? --Ed Poor Talk 16:41, 18 June 2009 (EDT)
When he tells O'Shaughnessy he's turning her in, she says it to him (again, I think). Marlowe 16:44, 18 June 2009 (EDT)
