Eddie Valiant from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Eddie Valiant (played by Bob Hoskins) is a hard-boiled private detective with a strong dislike for toons in Who Framed Roger Rabbit?  Eddie is hired by R.K. Maroon to investigate Jessica, the wife of Roger Rabbit, as he believes she is having an affair.  Eddie is slowly pulled into a much wider conspiracy and finds himself working closely with several toons, including Roger as they try to unravel the mystery and save Roger from the nefarious Judge Doom.  If you aren’t interested in shelling out the extra dough for the replica tie from the movie, choose one with a vintage pattern in a similar color scheme.
