The Maltese Falcon

The Dark End of the Street: Classic Film Noir
(NR) USA – 1 hr 40 min – with subtitles  
1941 · d. John Huston
Reviews
Starring Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre, Elisha Cooke Jr.

The lady (Mary Astor) has a job for hard-boiled detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart). Something about a missing sister. Her story smells funny, but her money talks. Soon, things go foul and Spade finds himself caught up with a gang of seedy characters chasing an invaluable statue shaped like a bird of prey. Beyond its heaps of bona fides—John Huston’s directorial debut, a star-maker for Bogie, debatably the first film noir—The Maltese Falcon remains a cracking good yarn brimming with tough talk, dangerous dames, and twisting intrigues.

Shown in conjunction with the film course The Dark Side of Hollywood: Film Noir, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Andrew J. Douglas, Ph.D.
