Summary
  • Maltese falcon : In his break-through role, Bogart plays private eye, Sam Spade. A beautiful but mysterious woman calls on Sam Spade, of Spade & Archer Detective Agency and hires his services to look for her sister who is missing. What follows is a thrilling drama involving murder, mayhem and a search by various and colourful characters for a certain ornament, the Maltese Falcon. Spade sets out to find out who shot his partner Arhcie, while working on a case. Spade becomes involved with a group of devious characters in search of the valuable statuette, the jewel-encrusted falcon of Malta, a tribute in 1539 to Charles V of Spain from the Knight Templars of Malte. Pirates seized the galley carrying the priceless token and the fate of the Maltese Falcon remains a mystery to this day. The focus is on private eye Sam Spade as he investigates the murder of his partner and searches for the mysterious, priceless falcon. This was a prototype for film noir in the feeling of unease running through the presentation of a claustrophobic world animated by betrayal, pain and hints of perversion. However, there is also a vein of dark humour more often linked with the private eye film. Bogart as Sam Spade is the archetypal forties 'hard-boiled' private eye who is ultimately validated as the the masculine hero. Classic film noir tends to question unified and potent masculinity. Huston's direction here is also more matter-of-fact and visually less expressionistic than the later noir-influenced detective films
