Synopsis

The Maltese Falcon wasn't the first movie about a tough, cynical private investigator getting involved in a murky case. In fact, it wasn't even the first film based on the novel of the same name by writer Dashiel Hammett. But it was the first film that got all the elements exactly right - from the performance of Humphrey Bogart as the world-weary detective Sam Spade, to a memorable collection of villains whose actual pursuit of the elusive bird statue turns out to be something of a side issue. The result provided the blueprint for hundreds of crime movies to come.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
