The Maltese Falcon back to product details

Have viewed this, bought it, watched it dozen times

Surprised to find no reviews here for this, one of the greatest American films. I like to watch this one every so often for its superb style and method acting. Among its many events well worth seeing: Peter Lorre's entrance and that particular close-up homoerotic thing he does with the walking stick in front of Sam Spade. Mary Astor goes over the top along with the other fine actors in this piece of cinema history. By the way I just saw a new bronze plaque getting a lot of attention on the writer Hammett's former residence at corner of Post/Hyde in San Francisco.
