Adapted from one of the most popular detective novels ever written, The Maltese Falcon follows Samuel “Sam” Spade, a private detective in San Francisco. While on the case to find the alluring Miss Wonderley’s sister and to recover the jewel-encrusted figurine, Sam finds himself to be both the hunter and the hunted.
