After the death of his partner, detective Sam Spade (Bogart) finds himself enmeshed in a complicated, intriguing search for a priceless statuette. "It's the stuff dreams are made of," says Bogart of the Falcon. Excellent, fast-paced film noir with outstanding performances, great dialogue, and concentrated attention to details. Director Huston's first film and Greenstreet's talky debut. First of several films starring Bogart and Astor. Based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett. Also available colorized.
