The Brasher Baboon

Though he lends him a halfback-like heft
Of all depth Monty's Marlowe's bereft
Neither Bogie nor Powell,
He should throw in the towel
Though at tossing his hat he's quite deft.

As Phillip Marlowe in The Brasher Doubloon (John Brahm, 1947), actor George Montgomery is more brawny than brainy. But man, can the fellow flip his fedora.
