The hard-nosed detective. The suspicious cops. The dangerous woman. Through this quintessential film noir strides cynical Humphrey Bogart’s Sam Spade, stalked by Sidney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and Mary Astor. Let’s talk about the black bird. “You begin to understand the difference between good filmmaking and great filmmaking.”—James Monaco. 1941

“When you’re slapped you’ll take it and like it.”
