Hammett: 92 Years Ago Today

Valentine’s Day — for some reason or just random coincidence, one of those beams falling you hear about, in 1930 the Alfred A. Knopf company selected this date for the official publication of a little noir love story titled The Maltese Falcon.

You know, the one where the female love interest gets shipped off to prison and may get hanged?

As I always say, the sickest love story ever.
