It’s hard to imagine the classic 1941 film “The Maltese Falcon” being shot in any style other than film noir. As part of the library’s “Big Read” program focusing on Dashiell Hammett’s book, local enthusiast Paul Kaser will lead a discussion on the film noir style along with clips from classic noir films.
