The Maltese Falcon Movie Review (1941) | Roger Ebert

This deluxe, full-size replica of the 1941 Maltese Falcon Prop Statue, cast in reinforced, hardened resin. stands 12 inches tall, weighs in at a hefty thirteen pounds, and comes in optional exclusive gift packaging, wrapped in Chinese newspapers and bound with twine in Captain Jacobi's La Paloma burlap sea bag, and comes complete with a personalized Certificate of Authenticity. Sure, at somewhere around $180 or so, it's a little pricey, but considering one of two dinguses actually made for the movie -- and the only one known to have appeared on film -- sold in November 2013 for four million bucks, you might call this a bargain.


In this New York Sun article, Otto Penzler talks about the 75th anniversary of the publication of what he calls "possibly the greatest, and certainly the most famous, American detective novel, Dashiell Hammett's "The Maltese Falcon." and argues that Hammett might just be the most influential American writer of the 20th century.
