RAW movie club: The Maltese Falcon

Humphrey Bogart (as detective Sam Spade) and Mary Astor in The Maltese Falcon. 

Continuing my project to watch movies on Robert Anton Wilson's list of his 100 favorite movies, I decided that next I will watch The Maltese Falcon, No. 85 on the list.

RAW writes quite a bit about the Knights of Malta in his books, for example in Coincidance and in Everything Is Under Control, and in Coincidance, he writes that the group "inspired part of the plot of The Maltese Falcon." 

I'll watch the movie in the next couple of weeks and write about it in early June. I wanted to pick something that would not cost anything if anyone else wanted to watch it, too, and it is currently available free on Tubi (with ads), which is the way old people like me used to watch old movies on TV.
