    Satan Met a Lady (Warner Brothers, 1936). Window Card (14" X 22").
    The second adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's popular novel, The Maltese Falcon, this version -- cast more in the light comedy vein of the popular Thin Man movies -- stars Warren William as Ted Shayne (standing in for Sam Spade), and Bette Davis as Valerie Purvis, both of whom find themselves caught up in a search for the fabled Horn of Roland. Although the details have been somewhat changed - the Caspar Gutman character is, in this version, played by the venerable Alison Skipworth, for example - this is still very much the story of the Maltese Falcon, and a key film for fans of the mystery/private detective genre. Paper from this movie is extremely scarce, with this being the only known copy of the stunning window card we've ever seen! There is some minor staining in the left and right borders, and the piece has had about 1" trimmed from the top border. Otherwise, it is an extremely attractive and desirable piece that is sure to enhance any collection. Fine/Very Fine.
