    Wonderful to have this “original” Maltese Falcon to enjoy. It’s great to enjoy really old classics here on Rarelust.
    Here’s the beginning of the film’s review in The New York TImes…
    “Into the spacious silences and shadows of the Winter Garden the Warners last night dropped a screen interpretation of Dashiell Hammet’s “The Maltese Falcon” that brought back the reassurring hum which is the hallmark of contented audiences. An hour and ten minutes later, the inimitable Sam Spade having paid his last respects through prison bars to the inimitable Ruth Wonderly and brought the suave and almost gentle homicides of Mr. Hammett’s story to a close, it appeared that Roy Del Ruth had done splendidly by an excellent mystery story and given wilted entertainment seekers a decent excuse for getting in out of the heat.”
    Yes, movie theatres were one of the best places in America, when nobody had air conditioners, to “get away from it all” – including the heat. No, not the cops, the real heat.

    I think I prefer this to the Bogart version. Spade here is quite sleazy, and as soon as I saw this I realized that this was a pre Hays code film. I have yet to see, ‘Satan Met a Lady’ (1936), another version of the The Maltese Falcon plot.

    Wow I never knew this existed! Thank you so much!

    Please know that this is not the Bogart version.
    Thank you for posting it, but watch only if you want to know why they MADE the Bogart version.
