The Maltese Falcon

The Maltese Falcon(1941)

It's just a pity they don't make films like this anymore - the action and suspense is driven purely by dialogue, and yet from the beginning I couldn't look away, because the pacing was just right, so that there was never a boring moment, and there was always some question that needed answering, until the very end.

The classic noir, and I just hope the others will measure up!
