The lady has a job for detective Sam Spade. Her story smells funny, but her money talks. Soon, Spade is neck deep with a gang of seedy characters chasing a gold bird worth a mint. Beyond its bona fides—John Huston’s directorial debut, a star-maker for Bogart, debatably the first film noir—The Maltese Falcon remains a cracking good yarn brimming with tough talk, dangerous dames, and twisting intrigues.
The March 2 screening will be shown in conjunction with the film course Existential Bitterness: Film Noir’s Classic Era, 1941-58, taught by Paul Wright, Ph.D. On this date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.
