Watch: The Maltese Falcon 1941 123movies, Full Movie Online – Spade and Archer is the name of a San Francisco detective agency. That’s for Sam Spade and Miles Archer. The two men are partners, but Sam doesn’t like Miles much. A knockout, who goes by the name of Miss Wonderly, walks into their office; and by that night everything’s changed. Miles is dead. And so is a man named Floyd Thursby. It seems Miss Wonderly is surrounded by dangerous men. There’s Joel Cairo, who uses gardenia-scented calling cards. There’s Kasper Gutman, with his enormous girth and feigned civility. Her only hope of protection comes from Sam, who is suspected by the police of one or the other murder. More murders are yet to come, and it will all be because of these dangerous men — and their lust for a statuette of a bird: the Maltese Falcon..
Plot: A private detective takes on a case that involves him with three eccentric criminals, a beautiful liar, and their quest for a priceless statuette.

Recently re-released in glorious 4K (nope, I couldn’t tell the difference, either) but, hey – any excuse to see this wonderful crime noir on a big screen again is OK with me. When “Brigid” (Mary Astor) approaches PI “Sam Spade” (Humphrey Bogart) and his partner “Archer” (Jerome Cowan) with a dodgy sounding story about her sister being kidnapped by her older lover, they don’t believe a word of it – but $200 (and a bit of a shine to the lady from “Archer”) gets them to go through the motions. Well: they were right about one thing – her story was riddled with holes, but not so many as “Archer” becomes, and soon “Spade” and the police are trying to track down/avoid the murderer whilst trying to establish some sort of motive. Enter the stars of the film, for me, anyway – the uber-sleazy “Joel Cairo” (Peter Lorre) and “Gutman” (Sydney Greenstreet), the avuncular gentleman who has most of the pieces of the puzzle and who is as dangerous and devious as he is charming and disarming… Will “Spade” get to the bottom of the mystery before he ends up brown bread? That’s where the film falls down a bit – there is precious little jeopardy to the plot; indeed the last fifteen or twenty minutes are just a little disappointing – rushed even. Bogey is superb in the part, though – his portrayal reeks of a wonderful cynic, a seen-it-all-before ground down sort of man who takes his first drink of the day from the same glass he took his last from the day before and Astor is efficient, though not terribly engaging, as the lynchpin upon which much of the film depends. It’s 80 years old now – and I still think the use of a strong score from Adolph Deutsch, some wonderfully evocative lighting and effects (it rains quite a lot!) and, of course, a strong cast with a good story, takes some beating.
Review By: CinemaSerf

This is a pretty good movie that ages fairly well, but I do not feel compelled to pour superlatives down over as most reviews do, both critics and regular viewers. The actors look like they are having fun with it and this classic movie is worth watching just because of that. The dialogue, which I like to think is a specialty in my own otherwise unremarkable novels, is excellent.

I had trouble with how blasé Sam Spade seems to be with the bad news he received near the beginning, and how he reacted to it. (He redeemed himself a bit at the end in a passionate little speech about partners). And all the patter about love between Sam Spade and Miss O’Shaughnessey seemed silly to me, as there was never any sign they were connecting and getting closer: never mind they were also plotting each other’s downfall. Personally, Sam, I think your own assistant Effie was cuter, sweeter and a better catch.

But the movie is fun to watch and the mystery solving ending by Mr. Spade is top-notch stuff. The supporting cast is fine. See if you can pick out the guy who played Bert the cabdriver in Its A Wonderful Life (“My mouth’s bleeding, Bert! My mouth’s bleeding!”). And if you look closely, you can see Humphrey Bogart curl his mouth in that way the comic impressionists always exaggerate when they impersonate him.

There is only one Humphrey Bogart.

“The Greatest Movie Star of all time” and more
Bogart. The coolest guy to ever live?

Have you ever wondered what makes someone possess an essence that’s defined as being “cool”? They seem to have that combination between imagery and soul that few people truly have. Is it in the style of clothes you wear or one’s knowledge of independence? Is it the way you comb your hair or your unkempt humility for everything out there? It could be in your talk or how you walk, but maybe it’s more about what you say and where you’re going. In a sense it’s an attitude that seeks to define character and break the mold of control. It’s the fine line between knowing when to speak up and when saying less means more. So is Bogart the coolest guy to ever live? In a single word, absolutely.

The Maltese Falcon is basically a showcase for Bogart. A role that seems to be made for him, even with two previous attempts at the film. He is and always was born to play Sam Spade. The tough guy private investigator, who always has the right things to say. More likely to fire a witty comeback than a gun. Able to fall in love, even if only for the moment, and then send her to the gallows. All in the name of doing the right thing. It’s not an emotional business.

The movie itself wrote the book of the crime and mystery drama story. Probably the best written plot in it’s genre. No doubt that Bogart makes the character come alive, with that infectious voice and his uncompromising demeanor. But the movie itself is, to say the least, very good. The ending just does it for me. The last couple of lines are some of the best in film history.

Although it took me a while to finally see this film, I realize that it’s one of Bogart’s triumphs and has all the main reasons why I love the guy so much. Please, see this film and remember Bogart as he was.

“Heavy. What is it? The, uh, stuff that dreams are made of.”
