RARA-AVIS: Re: Maltese Falcon screenplay

Re Mr. Rivkin's account. It may very well have happened that way. However, I take issue with the assertion that the earlier version had nothing to do with the book. Actually the Ricardo Cortez version is a fairly faithful adaptation. Not as
"letter-of-the-law" exact as the Huston/Bogart version, but certainly a faithful version.

I wonder whether he might be referring to the first remake, SATAN MET A LADY?
