75 years ago today: Dashiell Hammett and Secret Agent X-9.

Among the neat photos in the San Francisco Historical Photograph Collection is this one of Dashiell Hammett toasting the creation of his comic strip Secret Agent X-9 on February 5, 1934, with co-creator Alex Raymond, Rube Goldberg, Chic Young (the creator of Blondie), and others.

About the photo: DVD of Secret Agent X-9 (1945), starring Lloyd Bridges and Keye Luke.
