This movie is one of the most iconic movies in history and practically defines the Noir genre in the public imagination. The film turned out to be much different than I expected. Worth a watch, definitely.

This was the second remaking of the film, and this one sticks the closest to the original atmosphere of Hammett's novel. Bogart's performance is outstanding. Sydney Greenstreet made his movie debut in this one (in his 60's;before he was a stage actor). He was petrified to be in front of the camera-but you would never guess. Huston's direction is excellent. Noir at its finest.

The 3-disc edition also contains an extra audio track with commentary by Bogart biographer Eric Lax, two earlier adaptations made from the original novel, "Warner Night at the Movies 1941" with a 'Short Subjects Gallery' presenting a vintage newsreel, Technicolor musical short "The Gay Parisian", and the classic cartoons "Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt" and "Meet John Doughboy". As if that's not enough, there' also an audio-only bonus: 3 radio show adaptations including a version starring Edward G. Robinson.
