The Maltese Falcon
A classic detective story with an all-star cast and mystery to keep guessing, and directorial debut for John Huston.
Humphrey Bogart stars as Sam Spade, a PI trying to make sense of the crimes going about in the town of San Francisco, with his female counterpart, Miss O’Shaughnessy played by Mary Astor, who he can’t make heads or tails of. Along with Peter Lorre (whom I went “yay!” when he appeared on-screen), with other supporting roles by Sydney Greenstreet, Elisha Cook Jr., and an appearance by Huston’s father making a cameo.
A story that starts out as a murder case, then transforms into an ordeal about a statue…
I love classics, seriously as soon as the dramatic orchestra music played I got all excited and giddy, how can you not love them?
Spam on it’s way.
