Apparently I've had The Maltese Falcon on my DVR for over a year.

Fortunately it doesn't really have many fight scenes, just a couple where one guy or the other gets sucker punched and the like.

And that Sam Spade guy sure wasn't cut out for the #MeToo generation. Some of his scenes were downright rapey.
