The Maltese Falcon (1941) Film Review

The Maltese Falcon
DIRECTOR: John Huston
 Humphrey Bogart’s big break, and he would remain a star until he died sixteen years later. One of the quintessential film noirs, “Falcon” has not stood the test of time as well as some of its compatriots, probably because of a plot that does not make much sense. However, the performances are there to savor with the great Mary Astor doing a superb turn as Bridget O’Shaughnessy and the gay triumvirate of Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet, and Elisha Cook Jr bringing up the rear!
Outstanding cinematography by Arthur Edeson.
