The Story - "The Maltese Falcon" is a film starring Humphrey Bogart as hard boiled detective, Sam Spade based on the book of the same title by Dashiell Hammett. At the center of the drama is a solid lead statuette called The Maltese Falcon. This falcon has nothing to do with the film. I found it in a small shop and thought it was unique. I had a custom black walnut base made to make the statuette stand out.
