Considered by many historians to be the first Film Noir, The Maltese Falcon stars the legendary Humphrey Bogart as antihero and private detective Sam Spade in this American classic. The brisk and hardboiled story follows Spade, coolly cynical and amoral, as he deals with three unscrupulous criminals, a gorgeous yet deceitful woman, and their pursuit to obtain a priceless falcon statuette. Praised for its great dialogue and menacing scenes, this directorial debut of acclaimed filmmaker John Huston is a stylish and labyrinthine mixture of mystery, romance, and thriller. Introduction by film historian and critic Leonard Maltin
