** Winthrop also appears (along with Newman's vampire heroine Genevieve) in a small role in ''The Big Fish'', in which a hard-boiled pulp fiction detective (who enjoys reading hard-boiled pulp fiction) investigates a case that mixes organised crime and the CthulhuMythos. His actual name is never revealed, though he does bear a striking resemblance to Literature/PhilipMarlowe from the novels by Creator/RaymondChandler. (WordOfGod has been ambiguous about whether he's actually Marlowe or just some guy with a similar shtick.)
