Movie Matinee - The Maltese Falcon (1941)
Join us for a classic movie every Wednesday morning.
This week's movie is: The Maltese Falcon (1941). John Huston sketches a dark, cynical world with painfully deep perception. Detective Sam Spade’s (Humphrey Bogart) search for his partner’s killer leads him to a group of determined individuals who want the jeweled falcon of Malta: Brigid O'Shaughnessey (Mary Astor), the beautiful femme fatale, cowardly Joel Cairo (Peter Lorre), and pompously inflated Casper Gutman (Sydney Greenstreet)
Starring Humphrey Bogart and Mary Astor. Turner/Warner Bros. Black and White. Not rated. 101 minutes.
