classic hollywood: The Maltese Falcon (1941)

Another photo with Humphrey Bogard that I do have ala 8×11 is this still from the 1941 film “The Maltese Falcon”.  In the photo are Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, Mary Astor and Sydney Greenstreet.

“The Maltese Falcon” (1941)  is actually a remake of a film of the same name from 1931 which starred Bebe Daniels and Ricardo Cortez.   With the 1941 version being written and directed by John Huston.

The film is considered one of the greatest American films of all time, considered as the first film to inspire film noir and was selected for inclusion in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry back in 1989.
