Of all the adaptations of this Dashiell Hammett classic, "The Maltese Falcon" (1941) is often considered the best, and a career-defining role for Humphrey Bogart as detective Sam Spade. The movie was John Huston's directorial debut, and it's amazingly assured and seamless; the performances by Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, Ward Bond and Elisha Cook Jr. are all unforgettable. The Academy thought so too; "The Maltese Falcon" was nominated for three Academy Awards, for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor and Best Screenplay.
