DescriptionThe Maltese Falcon (Warner Brothers, 1941). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
Although Dashiell Hammett's novel had been filmed twice before - once under its familiar title in 1931, and once as Satan Met a Lady in 1936 - it was this version that became definitive, thanks to perfect casting and the sure hand of John Huston in the director's chair. Humphrey Bogart was a star in 1941, but it was this movie that made him a superstar and a true Hollywood immortal. It's one of Bogie's best, and one of the most difficult of his films from which to find paper. This lobby card has pinholes in the borders, stains along the edges, and tape stain bleedthrough in the top and bottom borders. Fine/Very Fine.
Estimate: $1,200 - $2,400.
