Overview:
Bogart’s Sam Spade is the quintessential ’40s private eye; he’s cynical, he’s tough, and he’s his own man. Based on Dashiell Hammett’s novel about a devious collection of men and women, all of whom are involved in a dangerous search for the priceless, mysterious statue of a black bird.
This third version of Hammett’s novel was nominated for a best picture Academy Award, but lost to How Green Was My Valley
