The Maltese Falcon (1931) (6/10)

This early version of the Hammet novel hits most of the same plot points of the later version but the acting is corny and there’s a lack of any visual flare to the direction. The story is still good and there is a plot hole that’s filled out in this version (a witness to the crime is the key piece evidence which seems to have been added completely as an afterthought)
