Movie Review - The Maltese Falcon

Based on the novel by Dashiell Hammet (who also wrote the Thin Man series), directed by John Huston and released in 1941, the movie has Humphrey Bogart playing Sam Spade, a detective who walks a thin line between right and wrong, while trying to solve a series of murders connected to a supposedly priceless artifact. John Huston and Humphrey Bogart also worked together on High Sierra and Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

I love this movie, if only because of it's script - it's quick, witty and immensely psychological.
