I'm not as familiar with this genre as you guys are. The only name that jumps to mind is Sam Spade. A he's a work of fiction.

I love Johnny Dollar, but have been liking a lot of the others on OTR:

Richard Diamond
Pat Novak
Nick Carter

I could never choose...don't forget Phillip Marlowe!

I'm much more of a cosy person than hardboiled, but I have to go with Phillip Marlow.

I can see how Rockford sort of fits into the genre, but he's also pretty funny (not to mention his various sidekicks) -- does that count? The humor in Rockford certainly lightens the mood.
