"The stuff that dreams are made of..."

The Maltese Falcon is a classic, enthralling thriller and the definitive film version of Dashiell Hammett's unforgettable novel. Adapted by John Huston (who also directed), the film marks the big break of actor Humphrey Bogart who went on to star in such beloved classics as Casablanca and The African Queen.

Since it is such a classic, of course, I was really eager to check this flick. To be honest, the circumstances I watched the damned thing were far from being ideal (I was really tired and the recording was seriously messed up). On top of that, this movie has a disadvantage of being already 70 years old and, by that time, I had alredy watched many other film noirs with or without Humphrey Bogart ... read more

This is an exceptional film noir, with superb acting performances, scriptwriting and directing.
Enough said :)

Sam Spade is a partner in a private-eye firm who finds himself hounded by police when his partner is killed whilst tailing a man. The girl who asked him to follow the man turns out not to be who she says she is, and is really involved in something to do with the 'Maltese Falcon', a gold-encrusted life-sized statue of a falcon, the only one of its kind.

"Although it is by far the best known version, John Huston's adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's detective novel 'The Maltese Falcon' was actually the third screen version of the story. Nevertheless, Huston's take on the story immediately became the definitive version, as well as a crucial early entry into the Film Noir genre and a hell of an impressive debut picture for a first-time director. Eager to prove himself, Huston meticulously planned every second of the film with annotated scripts and ske"

"31.05. Netflix, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY John Huston Film noir on loppujen lopuks aika tylsä genre. Tympiää pälätystä jostain helvetin haukasta. Ainakin Bogartin kingailua ja Lorren hännystelyä on ihan hauska seurata. "
