I enjoyed the original Pelham quite a bit. I'd be tempted to say that it is one of my favorites, but it's been a little while since I saw it. I wish I owned it, actually. I've almost watched Scott's about a half a dozen times... mainly due to his overwhelming support on this forum. You'd give me an extra little nudge to see it. Actually, just talking about it right now might give me that motivation. Heck, now I'm starting to think I'll just go ahead and watch all the films that I suggested. :P

Well he should be. I can't be trusted to be the only voice of ideas.

I've only seen the Ben-Hurs from your suggestions.

Yes, I'll be taking suggestions right on through the day I complete the Rematch for The Maltese Falcon.

These suggested Rematches would be interesting because they are mostly films that I haven't seen. Of course, I've seen clips from the three versions of A Star is Born, and from the 1979 version of The Champ. And I've seen Wyler's Ben-Hur. I think I also read the novel when I was in 6th grade. I've seen neither version of Breathless.

Some of these also have the interesting factor of being about films that I never intended to see. As I learned with 3:10 to Yuma, I might find new favorites if I can get over my prejudices.

Time for you to drag out the DVDs and watch all three films based on The Maltese Falcon so you can help me out with erudite comments. :D I'll be watching all three again to write the rest of the essays, because it's been nearly a year since I saw them last, and I've forgotten a lot of fine points that I wanted to mention.

Well, there's the 1956 one, the 1978, the 1990 one and the 2007 one that was renamed just Invasion before release.

Okay. I found these:
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
Body Snatchers: the invasion continues (1993) which sounds like a sequel, so it may not be one of those you are thinking of. Then again, the Wikipedia article calls it the third film made form the original novel.
The Invasion (2007)

I was aware of 56, 78 and 07. Hadn't ever heard of the 1993 film. Is this the one you attributed to 1990? European release dates may be different, so I thought I'd look these up and be sure I've bookmarked the ones you had in mind.

Good, then. I've looked up sources for everything everyone has suggested to help me decide which ones are more practical; then I'll decide which ones are most interesting and select a couple after all the Noms are in.

Of course, the Nominations are still open, so if you or anyone else has more ideas, please post them. :D

Negative comments about the films would be just as welcome. And remember, in this case you get to finish with the best one!

Also, I'm telling you truly, watching all three back-to-back would be an excellent miniature course in film adaptation. Of course, they would mean the most if you read or re-skimmed the novel, then watched the films in release order. That's my plan before proceeding with the Rematch posting. Naturally, your plan is entirely up to you! :)

Either Friday or Saturday morning I have to take a 22-year old car to get the A/C blower worked on. I'll re-skim the novel while I'm there. Then on Saturday I'll watch all 3 films BTB.

Wow, I just had to go back and edit my Wilmer Cook essay because I had totally mis-remembered that Kenneth in Satan Met a Lady has no lines. He has more than Dwight Frye as Wilmer Cook has in the 1931 film!

That's why I'm re-watching before going ahead with the rest of the essays. Editing posted files is a lot of work. :D

A Comparison of The Maltese Falcon (1931), Satan Met a Lady (1936) & The Maltese Falcon (1941)

Image The Writers

The 1931 version had two screenwriters, Maude Fulton and Brown Holmes. This was the first produced screenplay for Holmes, who later wrote I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang, and Moon Over Miami. Because the style of early sound films was more deliberately paced, this film (only 4 years into the commercial sound film era) represents a very well-done talking picture. The editing seems to hang on shots too long in some places, but that was the style back in the day. Some of it must have had to do with editing sound tracks. It was nearly impossible to layer sound until the later 1930s, so sometimes a shot would hold not only for the picture detail, but to permit the technical switching of soundtracks from shot to shot.

Fulton had 8 silent screenplay credits before 1930 when she wrote dialogue for Once a Gentlemen. The adaptation of The Maltese Falcon was Maude Fulton's sixth sound-film screenplay. In 1931 viewers still had their habits from years of watching silent films, so shots that had no dialogue, but depended upon actors' facial expressions and stage business to carry the idea were still frequent. To modern eyes this seems too slowly paced. It is as if nothing is happening. There is no music, little ambient sound, and...well, no one is talking, so nothing seems to be happening.

The 1936 version had only one screenwriter, but he had experience adapting Dashiell Hammett to the screen: Brown Holmes was one of the two writers for the original, 1931 screenplay! In only five years the scripting style had changed from deliberate and metered so that everyone could follow the dialogue, to rapid-fire dialogue with a comic pacing to the editing. Audiences had become sophisticated enough to follow the spoken word and subtle on-screen business at the same time. The probability is that audiences were always capable of doing this, but the filmmakers thought they were not. Holmes was able to write this kind of script in 1936. Gone are the moments when there is only the silent cinema that I mentioned above. The writers of 1936 had to keep the pace lively.

The 1941 version is an example of what happens when a writer-director hits all the right marks. John Huston retained more scenes from the source novel than either of the other two films did. In fact, in my opinion he kept too much of the ending scene; although it plays well, it doesn't have the same rapid deployment that the film has before O'Shaunessy and Spade return to his apartment to find the other three already waiting. But the scene takes up 45 of the novel's 216 pages. It's the only "flaw" I can find in Huston's script. Over the course of his career, Huston acted in 55 films, wrote 40 titles and directed 48. This film started him as a director. The Maltese Falcon was the 15th time Huston had touched up or written a screenplay. His experience shows in this one.

Although The Maltese Falcon was his first directorial assignment, he directed many famous movies during his career. He was known as a rebel, someone who did not always do things the recognized way. One example of this is the 1963 thriller The List of Adrian Messenger, where he kept many of the starring cast members behind makeup that obscured their identities until the closing titles, when each actor ceremoniously removed the latex mask to reveal who he was. Kirk Douglas had four separate roles in the film!

In his script for The Maltese Falcon Huston imbues the characters with all the characterization that Hammett bothers with in his novel. And this gives the actors enough to go on to flesh out every single role. I think it was Huston's trust in his actors' instincts that makes the overall product so wonderful. He gave them a well-formed body onto which they could hang remarkable garments.
