"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.

Movies...Most Memorable Movie quotes (43 movies items)

"'The stuff that dreams are made of.'In a different movie, Humphrey Bogart turned a phrase that's equally as memorable as the one from "Casablanca." This time, the movie was "The Maltese Falcon" in 1941, and the quote can be used to describe anything too good for this side of heaven, from a stack of pancakes to a romantic encounter."

"“You would never imagine that this is John Huston’s first film…because it’s directed with such a sure hand. He has complete authority from first shot to last.” - Brad Bird “I love using The Maltese Falcon as a counter to people who bemoan every Hollywood remake because this is the third version of The Maltese Falcon…. John Huston saw Sydney Greenstreet in a play in Los Angeles; he’d never been in a movie before is such a sophisticated actor…. and Lorre are connected, and the"
