Hopper/Hooper

January 23, 2009

Expanding on an older thought: Hopper & Waugh are circling around the same thing. Doesn’t ‘Hooper’ (1945) seem like the name of the loner in Nighthawks (1942)? I wonder if if Waugh isn’t tipping his hat. Then again maybe there’s no allusion, just connotation, which seems reasonable. 

Of course, I think unintentional allusions count. But that, as they say, is another story.
