OTR: Lux Radio Theatre – The Maltese Falcon

Having just witnessed a 75th anniversary screening of this classic of noir (thanks to the “expert” direction of first time helmer John Huston), I can say that the story is still the thing, and this radio interpretation of the third iteration of Dashiell Hammett’s tale of the falcon from Malta (and, yes, that’s the Humphrey Bogart version…though he doesn’t appear in this radio version, sadly) gets the idea across in spades. ┬áSam Spade’s. ┬áHeh.
