The Maltese Falcon is the classic 1941 film noir starring Humphrey Bogart as private detective Sam Spade, who investigates a murder and who will take the fall. He comes in contact with a group of high-living lowlifes that will stop at nothing to get their hands on a jewel encrusted falcon. Now Sam has to keep his cool and tie up all the loose ends that lead to the falcon to get the killer of his partner and clear his name. This was the third and decidedly the best of the various filmed adaptations of Dashiell Hammety's classic detective novel, which included a 1931 feature film adaptation and 1936's Satan Met a Lady.
