Classic Shot


FALCON
There is a scene in the John Huston classic "The Maltese Falcon" in which Sydney Greenstreet's character Gutman has to choose between his right-hand man Wilmer or toss him to the cops so he can continue on with his quest for the priceless falcon statute.
Gutman mulls it over for a few seconds and then turns to Wilmer and tells him, "I am sorry indeed to lose you and I want you to know that I couldn't be fonder of you if you were my own son. But, well, by gad, if you lose a son, it's possible to get another and there's only one Maltese Falcon."
