SUNDAY, August 1st at 1:30pm: "TEA TIME at The Movies" Continues

TEATIME at The Movies 
continues today, our fun summer series were we read from the Lux Radio library, adapting great films of the 20th C

TODAY: The Maltese Falcon 

"Spade has no original. He is a dream man in the sense that he is what most of the private detectives I worked with would like to have been, and, in their cockier moments, thought they approached."     ~ Dashiell Hammett

The Maltese Falcon is a 1941 American film noir written and directed by John Huston in his directorial debut, based on the 1930 novel of the same name by Dashiell Hammett, and indebted to the 1931 movie of the same name. The story follows a San Francisco private detective and his dealings with three unscrupulous adventurers, all of whom are competing to obtain a jewel-encrusted falcon statuette.
