Synopsis

Fathom Events, Turner Classic Movies and Warner Bros. Entertainment invite you to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of The Maltese Falcon (1941) when it soars into select cinemas nationwide for a special two-day event on Sunday, February 21 and Wednesday, February 24. This beloved classic will be accompanied by special commentary from TCM hosts Robert Osborne or Ben Mankiewicz, who will provide insight, background and more, making this film come alive. A gallery of high-living lowlifes will stop at nothing to get their sweaty hands on a jewel-encrusted falcon. Detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) wants to find out why – and who’ll take the fall for his partner’s murder. An all-star cast including Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Elisha Cook Jr. joins Bogart in this crackling mystery masterwork, written for the screen from Dashiell Hammett’s novel and directed by John Huston. Nominated for three Academy Awards® including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Greenstreet) and Best Screenplay (Huston), this classic film catapulted Bogart to stardom and launched Huston’s directorial career, all with a bird and a bang! 1941 (14th) Nominations: Actor in a Supporting Role – Sydney Greenstreet {“Kaspar Gutman”}; Outstanding Motion Picture – Warner Bros.; Writing (Screenplay) – John Huston
