30 Days, 30 Movies {Day 6} Gumshoe Movie – The Maltese Falcon

I hate it when I don’t have good news. I really do. I did not enjoy saying that His Girl Friday was not worth watching. I don’t enjoy saying the same thing about The Maltese Falcon.

The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Dashiell Hammett. I read that the movie is scene by scene exactly the same as the novel. Maybe that’s why it’s so confusing. Maybe the characters thoughts, which can’t be heard on film, explain the action. I tried to borrow the book from the library to see if my theory was correct, but they didn’t have a copy.

Because my husband is a Magnum PI aficionado, he recognized this guy:

He’s Ice Pick!

Of course, the French version of the poster is the best.
