Solve a mystery, The Maltese falcon

A classic mystery.

A dastardly crew of crooks is in pursuit of a gold and jewel-encrusted statue of a falcon worth a king's ransom. But when private eye Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) gets involved, the stakes shift dramatically. This first motion picture directed by John Huston also featured Bogart's first starring role in a Warner Brothers film and is indisputedly one of the finest film-noir classics of all time. The movie script follows the original Dashell Hammett novel almost word-for-word and the cast delivers their lines with such panache, it seems impossible to imagine any other actors in these roles. Nobody can toss off Sam Spade's sneering tough-guy wisecracks like Bogart. What actress other than Mary Astor as the conniving Brigid O'Shaughnessy could lie so seductively? And, of course, the team of villains played by Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre, and Elisha Cook, Jr. are played to absolute sinister perfection

    Definite maybe. It's far enough out that something might conflict, but so far it's clear.
