    The Maltese Falcon(s)

    When I was returning to the park on Thursday I stumbled across what I'd call a double feature DVD-The Maltese Falcon (1931) starring Ricardo Cortez and Bebe Daniels. I watched TMF Thursday evening and it was pretty good although the plot is a tad convoluted. On the back of the DVD case, it reads this is a pre-Code film. Elsewhere I read the film was considered lewd.
    The other movie is Satan Met A Lady (1936). Bette Davis is the star. I haven't watched it yet. It's also a Maltese Falcon movie.

    Books are weapons in the war of ideas.

    Yeah, there's 3 iterations of the movie. I have a DVD package that has all three, but have only watched the classic '41 version (which incidentally is the 3rd one). Solid book too.
