Great Movie at a Good Price

by on 10/20/2008

This three-disc set includes three black-and-white films with almost identical plots. Included are Bogart's Maltese Falcon and two earlier films--a previous Maltese Falcon and a Bette Davis film entitles Satan Met a Lady.

Product Overview

A gallery of high-living lowlifes will stop at nothing to get their sweaty hands on a jewel-encrusted falcon. Detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) wants to find out why - and who'll take the fall for his partner's murder. Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre, and Elisha Cook, Jr. join "Bogie" in this crackling mystery masterwork written for the screen (from Dashiell Hammett's novel) and directed by John Huston. The 3-DVD Special Edition also includes the 1931 version of The Maltese Falcon starring Ricardo Cortez and the 1936 film, Satan Met a Lady, starring Bette Davis. All three films are based on the same novel.

ReviewSource Crazy for Cinema
Review [1941] One of the first and best film noirs to ever come out of Hollywood. Bogart finally gets the star treatment as street smart detective Sam Spade, a man caught in a sticky web of lies, betrayal and murder...Lorre and Greenstreet are two of the best character actors to ever come out of Hollywood and prove why here. Astor is bad to the bone, but gives the usual vamp role class and intelligence. Bogart moves up to the A-list with this performance. He has an ugly mug, but no one plays hard-boiled with a heart of gold better. A must-see worth seeking out.

Review [1931] Roy Del Ruth adroitly directs this 1931 mystery adapted from Dashiell Hammett's 1930 novel, which was the original version of The Maltese Falcon...There was also a 1936 version starring Bette Davis called Satan Met a Lady, described by her as a turkey, which was a more disguised version of the novel (a ram's horn was replaced for the black bird). The definitive version and the one that everybody remembers as one of the greatest films ever was John Huston's 1941 version of The Maltese Falcon starring Bogey as Sam Spade. It was one of the few times a remake was so much better than the original, even if the original was a solid and enjoyable work.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review [1941] Among the movies we not only love but treasure, ''The Maltese Falcon'' stands as a great divide...To describe the plot in a linear and logical fashion is almost impossible. That doesn't matter. The movie is essentially a series of conversations punctuated by brief, violent interludes. It's all style. It isn't violence or chases, but the way the actors look, move, speak and embody their characters. Under the style is attitude: Hard men, in a hard season, in a society emerging from Depression and heading for war, are motivated by greed and capable of murder.

Classic Film Guide [1931] ...a very good film with Richard Cortez in the role of detective Sam Spade...
Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews [1941] It's rare when you get everything to work so well as it does in this pic.
Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies [Satan] ...Davis, a year after her Oscar nomination in Dangerous, shines...
Pam Grady, [1941] ...the breakthrough role that would transform [Bogart] from perennial heavy to romantic lead.
Scott Weinberg, [1941] Best in noir - Best in Bogie - One of the best ever.
