Epitome of classic filmmaking.

"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.

"Really just a boring film. I don't remember anything being bad, but the stakes of the plot were minor and the pacing was poor. I vastly prefer Touch of Evil and The Third Man as the greatest noirs."

"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. "

"30.8 Netflix new Netflix-poimintana katseluun taas yksi klassikko ja tästähän mä tykkäsin. Mukavan hämyistä tunnelmaa. Samoilla vauhdeilla piti vielä katsoa Casablanca perään."

My Movie Highlights of the 1940s (+Watchlists) (115 movies items)

"I liked Humphrey Bogart's performance and the cinematography is great. The story was not so interesting, too many dialogues. I expected more of this movie. In addition the soundtrack of the German dubbed version was annoying (Jazz music from the 60s - it destroyed some of the atmosphere) but it's not the fault of the original movie so I don't include it in my rating. My rating: 6,75"
