A gallery of high-living lowlifes will stop at nothing to get their hands on a jewel-encrusted falcon. Detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) wants to find out why—and who's to blame for his partner's murder. Sydney Greenstreet and Mary Astor (as the femme fatale) join Bogart in this crackling mystery masterwork, which is considered the first classic film noir. This 1941 Academy Award Nominee catapulted Bogart to stardom and launched John Huston's directorial career—all with a bird and a bang. Introduction by DFS Directorate Member Dennis Damon Moore. D: John Huston, US, 1941, 100m
