The Maltese Falcon

Maltese FalconI love old movies. I spent my childhood and adult years watching 30’s and 40’s black and whites. There’s something special about b/w film – the contrasts of lights and darks are perfect for a noir film.

I admit to loving the romantic comedies more than noir, but I have watched a few. My favorite of all time is The Maltese Falcon. There are several reasons why it’s on the top of my list. I love a mystery and any film that stars Humphrey Bogart. He teams well with his love interest Mary Astor. They were so good together they did another noir film Across the Pacific one year later.

Another thing going for the film is it’s based on a novel by Dashiell Hammett and adapted to screen by John Huston. Two giants in their fields.

Here’s a quick blurb on IMDb:

A private detective takes on a case that involves him with three eccentric criminals, a gorgeous liar, and their quest for a priceless statuette.

If you get the chance, rent it or stream it!
