  (1941) on VHS
(1941) on DVD
The first filming of The Maltese Falcon was a faithful and suspenseful adaptation. Ricardo Cortez is generally forgotten today but he was a star in 1931. While he wasn't as charismatic as Bogart, he gave a good, solid performance as Sam Spade. With Bebe Daniels, Dudley Digges, Otto Matieson, Dwight Frye and Thelma Todd.

  (a.k.a. Dangerous Female) on VHS

The second filmed version of The Maltese Falcon -- Satan Met a Lady (1936) -- featured Warren William as detective "Ted Shane" and Bette Davis as the woman of mystery who draws him into a deadly search for a fabulous jeweled ram's horn. Alison Skipworth played the sinister "Fat Woman."
