Film Noir Alert: The Maltese Falcon, 4am (Pacific Time), Monday 4/14/14. Turner Classic Movies.
One of the greatest, of course. (They are doing Mickey Rooney movies today, so hopefully the Falcon won't be pre-empted.)
Bogie, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre, Sydney Greenstreet, the great Elisha Cooke,Jr. Great movie all the way around. Written and directed by John Huston, based on Dashiell Hammett's terrific book. Can't say enough good about this one.
Sam Spade: I hope they don't hang you, precious, by that sweet neck. Yes, angel, I'm gonna send you over. The chances are you'll get off with life. That means if you're a good girl, you'll be out in 20 years. I'll be waiting for you. If they hang you, I'll always remember you.
