As soon as Miss Wonderly shows up, trouble follows as Sam’s partner is murdered and Sam is accosted by a man (Peter Lorre) demanding he locate a valuable statuette. Sam, entangled in a dangerous web of crime and intrigue, soon realizes he must find the one thing they all seem to want: the bejeweled Maltese falcon.
“Thoroughly engaging and thought provoking detective movie”
“A dark, steely performance from Humphrey Bogart is at the cynical heart of John Huston’s adaptation”
