In this film-noir classic, hard-boiled San Francisco private eye Sam Spade is a man with questionable morals but unquestionably good at what he does. One day, Spade is approached by Miss Wonderly, a woman who offers him considerable money in exchange for the protection of her safety from a man named Floyd Thursby. What follows is a series of murders, corruption and uncertainty all tied up in a classic web of mystery and deceit.
