I am particularly grateful to Aeon J. Skoble and Christeen Clemens for our many conversations about philosophy, film noir, and TV noir. 1.

For if we accept his claim that the motivations of Sam Spade are multiply interpretable, what are we to make of his earlier claims of Spade’s “underly- 26 Steven M. Sanders ing nobility,” that he is a “noble hero”? That seems to assume that various debatable matters about Spade’s character are already settled. There is also Holt’s claim that the interpretive openness of The Prisoner enhances rather than compromises the aesthetic appeal of the series, making it more, not less, aesthetically rewarding.
