The Maltese Falcon, 1941, is one of the most popular and best classic detective mysteries ever made. Considered the first of the film noir genre in Hollywood. It leaves the audience with a distinctly down-beat conclusion. The low budget film reflects the remarkable directorial debut of precocious writer John Huston ( previously a screenwriter) who efficiently and skillfully composed and filmed this American classic for Warner Bros. studios, with great dialogue, deceitful characters, and edge-of-your-seat suspense.
Huston was convinced he could remake the film with a more precise screenplay and better acting than the other two adaptations.
B-movie lead character Humphrey Bogart, now introduced as a 'good guy', presented the definitive anti-hero Sam Spade in the mystery thriller classic...as a cynical, cool San Francisco sleuthing private-eye, who lives by his own code of ethics. The film received 3 nominations , but n Academy Awards, Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay (by the director-John Huston).
