First and best film noir, in fact one of the best films ever made. Everything about it is letter perfect. Bogart is overpowering as Sam Spade, and Mary Astor is the very essence of a femme fatale, plus the supporting cast is flawless.

why is it assumed that woman is going to jail for killing miles? sam spades' say so? theres no evidence against her.

Everyone who likes movies should watch this a few times over their lifetime. I'll just comment about the features, which aren't real features. Other than the trailers for a few contemporary films, there's only one feature. It's a commentary overdubbed over the film as it progresses, but it's really about this and that character actor (Ward Bond, for instance) and his career and relationship to Bogart, or someone else. Nothing about the film itself. A few quaint notes here and there about a poster in the background in this particular scene that advertises a Bogie flick that was his very worst; or about how only in a single wordless scene, where his partner gets shot, does Sam Spade not appear onscreen. Etc.

A stylistic piece of workmanship. (Supposedly) touted as the first of the film noir genre. Bogart was larger than life. The entire cast was superb, notably the 'humbugging' Greenstreet, and the sniveling Lorre. A helluva directorial debut for John Huston. FIVE STARS.

A good film with a bit of a let down concerning the solution to the mystery.

One of the best films ever, period. Bogart at his finest, and he's surrounded by a brilliant cast.

Considered to be the best film noir ever produced. And John Huston made this as a first time director. "This is the stuff that dreams are made of."

Considered by many to be the best film noir ever made. This movie and the movie Julia got me to read 3 or 4 of Dashiell Hammett's novels plus read a biography of Hammett. I myself consider Chinatown to be closest to this one in excellence, with the full essence of film noir.
