Old School "Modern" Role-Playing?

Does anyone know of a old-school type rules set geared toward a "modern" (non-fantasy) setting?  I am thinking something like Stars Without Number, but 20th-Century pulp or espionage instead of sci-fi?  Magic would be confined almost exclusively to NPC's.  PC's would be two-fisted adventurers, spies, or scholars of esoteric lore.

Is something like this out there?

  3. Well, you could elaborate on Boot Hill or Mercenaries Spies and Private Eyes. Both are fairly old school.
