The Maltese Falcon 3.0 stars

Maltese Falcon movie poster
  • Rated NR | 1 hour, 40 minutes

The third and the most revered (but, please, not the definitive) movie version of Hammett's mystery novel. It insists on the fun involved in private-eye escapades, as it wobbles underneath the consequences of some whimsical casting and playing — Sidney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, Elisha Cook, Mary Astor, and Bogart as Spade. This is John Huston's first directing job, and he seems determined to make a lark of it. Some of that spirit is contagious. 1941.
