The Maltese Falcon (1941)
I don't mind a reasonable amount of trouble.
So basically: P.I. Sam Spade gets involved in a case after his partner, Archer, is murdered by Thursby, the man he was tailing after being hired by Miss Wanderly. Miss Wanderly is in fact Brigid O'Shaugnessy. Thursby also ended up dead that night. Now Spade is surrounded by dangerous people all in search of the mysterious Maltese Falcon.
This movie has little more plot than The Big Sleep. For further review, please see The Big Sleep. It will explain everything.
I do not see how this movie can be so well liked and defs does not deserve to be on the list.
Ziggi seal of approval.
