Last night I was feeling in a bit of a nostalgic mood. And, so - With that, I decided to take a stroll down Hollywood's "Memory Lane" with 1941's "The Maltese Falcon".

Loosely based on the 1930 novel (of the same name) penned by famous crime-writer, Dashiell Hammett (who, in 1953, was blacklisted) - The Maltese Falcon (clearly a product of its time) actually turned out to be a bit of a let-down (though not a major one) for me.

Now, I'm certainly not going to get into trashing this John Huston production in a big way - But I will say that this film has not aged well and its story clearly left a whole lot to be desired.
