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).
For ages 12 and older.
