The Maltese Falcon

The Maltese Falcon ★★★★

Surprised at how good this version of The Maltese Falcon is. It doesn’t have nearly as distinct an atmosphere as the famous 1941 adaptation but has the advantage of being more frank about sex as a Pre Code. Richard Cortez and Bebe Daniels deliver career best performances and along with the rest of the cast produce an enthralling version of the Hammett novel.
