The Maltese Falcon

Movie Information

In Brief: Following two earlier adaptations of Dashiell Hammett's Sam Spade source novel, John Huston's The Maltese Falcon (1941) proves that occasionally the third time is the charm. A cornerstone of Film Noir, the film that catapulted Humphrey Bogart to stardom, the first pairing of Sidney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre (out of nine!), the list of groundbreaking firsts goes on and on. The prominence of The Maltese Falcon in the annals of cinema history is undeniable, but more than just a significant film, it's also a pretty damned entertaining one. If you've never seen this one on the big screen, you're in for a real treat.
