Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

The Maltese Falcon
Some high-living lowlifes want to get their sweaty hands on a bejeweled falcon. Detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) wants to find out why - and who'll take the fall for his pertner's murder. Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Elisha Cook Jr. co-star in a crackling masterwork directed and written for the screen by John Huston.

The Big Sleep
L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) takes on a blackmail case...and wears out his gumshoes trailing murderers, nightclub rogues, the spoiled rich and more. Lauren Bacall joins Bogart under Howard Hawks' brisk and atmospheric direction of an ace adaptation of Raymond Chandler's novel.

Dial M For Murder
Alfred Hitchcock's screen version of Frederick Knott's stage hit casts Grace Kelly, Ray Milland and Robert Cummings as points of a romantic triangle. She loves Cummings; her husband Milland plots her murder. But when he dials a Mayfair exchange to set the plot in motion, his right number gets the wrong answer!

The Postman Always Rings Twice
Based on the novel by James M. Cain (Double Indemnity, Mildred Pierce), this quintessential film noir stars John Garfield and Lana Turner as illicit lovers who botch a first attempt to bump off her husband, pull it off and betray each other at trial. Amorous attractions never proved so fatal as in this steamy, stormy classic.

        This is a gift but I have seen two of the movies already on TCM but have never seen The Big Sleep or The Maltese Falcon (hard to believe) so I am looking forward to watching those!!

            These movies help you lose your self. The characters put you through a range of emotion and and you have love hate relationships with the good and bad in the films.For those who like suspense and would like to introduce younger viewers I think this package is a very good starter.

                  You just can't beat these older mysteries with great actors and classic stories. These need to be shared with your older kids and grandkids (age-appropriate) so they, too, can develop an appreciation for some of Hollywood's classic movies.

                  Comments about this product:

                  i really loved these films, I had never bought from tcm before and for some reason assumed they would all be wide screen format. Unfortunately, all are full screen. I should have paid better attention, because I definitely would have reconsidered this purchase.

                        This is a great set of film noirs without a doubt, but as a warning, the set includes the 1945 pre-release version of "The Big Sleep," not the 1946 version that is known to most movie goers. I had no idea when I ordered this collection, but it was a pleasant surprise to me because the original is great too and important to watch if you're a fan of this film. A lot of details in the mystery are definitely cleared up in the original version.
