‘The Maltese Falcon’ Movie Synopsis

In The Maltese Falcon, Spade and Archer is a detective agency in San Francisco. While Sam Spade and Miles Archer are partners, Sam doesn’t care for Miles that much. When a woman calling herself Miss Wonderly walks into their office for a job, Miles winds up dead while investigating. Soon a man named Floyd Thursby turns up dead too. It seems Miss Wonderly is involved with a few dangerous men with unknown intentions. One is Joel Cairo—who loves gardenia-scented calling cards, if you know what I mean. The other is a large man named Kasper Gutman. Wonderly hopes Sam can solve the case as the police suspect her in the murders. As Spade digs deeper into the case, he finds more murders, tons of lies, and the three’s insatiable quest for a statuette they call the Maltese Falcon.

  1. Nice first podcast. Hope Lori joins sometime. What film is scheduled for November?

    1. November’s podcast will be a neo-noir…1998’s Out of Sight. And Lori will be on the show in April next year when she reviews Gilda (1946) with me.
