Private detective, Sam Spade––portrayed with all the swagger Humphrey Bogart can muster––is a smooth operator who keeps his cards close to his chest... and his enemies even closer.
His latest case puts him in hot water with three eccentric criminals and their quest for a priceless statuette. With Mary Astor as a femme fatale that breathes believability into every lie she spins, Peter Lorre at his bug-eyed best, and every line of dialogue dripping with pitch-black cool, this shadowy trip into the underworld sets the template for American Film Noirs for years to come.
