ep 13 maltese falcon

Well, Wilmer, I’m sorry indeed to lose you. But, I want you to know I couldn’t be fonder of you, if you were my own son. But, well, if you lose a son, it’s possible to get another. There’s only one Maltese Falcon. – Kasper Gutman, The Maltese Falcon


Now listen, you nice rattle-brained little angel, we’ve got a classic one for you this month. Look out, because by the time you’re done enjoying our gardenia-scented calling card, you’ll be deep into the fast-moving, hard-boiled world of San Francisco private eye Sam Spade in John Huston’s directorial debut.

What do the Knights Templar and Humphrey Bogart have in common? Is it ever okay to call your secretary “sweetheart” or “darling”? What exactly is a MacGuffin and how many can you have in one movie? All those questions are on one side. Maybe some of them are unimportant. We won’t argue with that. But, look at the number of them. What have we got on the other side? All we’ve got is that maybe you’ll love this episode and maybe we’ll love you for listening. Download it now; it’s the stuff that dreams are made of.
