SBMA Museum Collectors Council Film Screening: From Page to Silver Screen: The Maltese Falcon

January 28, 2023 @ 1:30 am PST

Julie M. Rivett, Dashiell Hammett’s granddaughter and archivist, will discuss Hammett’s noir in literature and how it was adapted for the big screen.

Based on the 1930 novel by Dashiell Hammett, The Maltese Falcon is a 1941 American film noir written and directed by John Huston in his directorial debut, and indebted to the 1931 movie of the same name. It stars Humphrey Bogart as private investigator Sam Spade and Mary Astor as his femme fatale client. Gladys George, Peter Lorre, and Sydney Greenstreet co-star, with the latter appearing in his film debut. The story follows a San Francisco private detective and his dealings with three unscrupulous adventurers, all of whom are competing to obtain a jewel-encrusted falcon statuette.
