Maltese Falcon Movie Statuette

The iconic falcon statuette at the center of John Huston”s 1941 film-noir masterpiece “The Maltese Falcon” (Warner Bros.) is one of the most important and recognizable objects in the history of cinema. As the legacy of the film has continued to grow, more so has the intrigue surrounding the seductively mysterious falcon statuette. The resin falcon, weighing 4 pounds 5.4 ounces and standing 11 1/2 inches tall, was discovered by Emmy-winning producer/director Ara Chekmayan in New Jersey in 1991. Recognizing the Warner Brothers “WB 90456″ serial number scratched into the base, Mr. Chekmayan began to extensively research the figure. He found that among those familiar with the production of the film, the consensus was that the resin copy was indeed the falcon that appeared in several 8 x 10” publicity photos pictured in the hands of Bogart on the film set. These photographs of the actor and the statuette became the most recognizable images from the film.
