The classic 1941 movie which made Humphrey Bogart a star. "The Maltese Falcon" is a film about a detective name Sam Spade who is drawn to a statuette, a golden falcon which bears the title of the film. Other people are drawn to the bird including Spade.
John Huston, who direct "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre," seven years later, will carry a common theme, The that is greed is bad, and when it's bad it will do bad things for people who want it. The best quote happens at the end of the film when Spade when asked of the bird said, "the stuff that dreams are made of." A turly classic mystery. I love this movie.
