Ranked in the top 50 films of all time by the American Film Institute, The Maltese Falcon stands as a crackling, gritty masterwork of the silver screen. Based on Dashiell Hammett's 1929 detective novel of the same name, the 1941 film adaptation was directed and written for the screen by John Huston. The plot twists and turns around a handful of high-living lowlifes all on the hunt for a rare, exceptionally valuable jewel-encrusted statue of a falcon, and the story is told through a hardboiled private detective by the name of Sam Spade, played flawlessly by Humphrey Bogart. Mary Astor plays the role of double-crossing dame, setting a high bar as the quintessential film noir femme fatale to match wits with Bogie’s archetypal private dick. See a late-night showing of the classic film noir at Inwood Theatre (5458 W. Lovers Lane) as a part of the theatre’s Midnight Madness series. The screening begins at 11:59 p.m. Friday, March 24. Tickets are $10.50 at - Daniel Rodrigue
