Fun fact: Peter Lorre's real first name was Laszlo.

The Big Sleep. If you can get the DVD with both versions a plus.

I think it is quite the perfect movie. Going to queue it up to watch tomorrow morning I think, it's been over a year since I've watched.

I got to see The Maltese Falcon on the big screen a few years ago. They had a pristine copy and it was glorious. Of course I have owned several copies and seen it many times but it was something special to see it as it was meant to be seen.
I also hate that when you see this movie on TV it has been edited for time etc.So much nuance is lost with theses cuts.

As mentioned by others, African Queen and Treasure of the Sierra Madre.

Then to Key Largo, The Big Sleep.

Then watch some Robert Mitchum film noir.

I recently decided to look up the English translation for La Marseillaise. If you haven't seen the translation it brings much to the scene.

La Marseillaise - English lyrics

Arise children of the fatherland
The day of glory has arrived
Against us tyranny's
Bloody standard is raised
Listen to the sound in the fields
The howling of these fearsome soldiers
They are coming into our midst
To cut the throats of your sons and consorts

To arms citizens Form your battalions
March, march
Let impure blood
Water our furrows

What do they want this horde of slaves
Of traitors and conspiratorial kings?
For whom these vile chains
These long-prepared irons?
Frenchmen, for us, ah! What outrage
What methods must be taken?
It is us they dare plan
To return to the old slavery!

What! These foreign cohorts!
They would make laws in our courts!
What! These mercenary phalanxes
Would cut down our warrior sons
Good Lord! By chained hands
Our brow would yield under the yoke
The vile despots would have themselves be
The masters of destiny

Tremble, tyrants and traitors
The shame of all good men
Tremble! Your parricidal schemes
Will receive their just reward
Against you we are all soldiers
If they fall, our young heros
France will bear new ones
Ready to join the fight against you

Frenchmen, as magnanimous warriors
Bear or hold back your blows
Spare these sad victims
That they regret taking up arms against us
But not these bloody despots
These accomplices of Bouillé
All these tigers who pitilessly
Ripped out their mothers' wombs

We too shall enlist
When our elders' time has come
To add to the list of deeds
Inscribed upon their tombs
We are much less jealous of surviving them
Than of sharing their coffins
We shall have the sublime pride
Of avenging or joining them

Drive on sacred patriotism
Support our avenging arms
Liberty, cherished liberty
Join the struggle with your defenders
Under our flags, let victory
Hurry to your manly tone
So that in death your enemies
See your triumph and our glory!
