That sort of thing is why this is my favorite AVS Forum. Many posters here love films and know a lot about them. I seem to learn something new here every day.

I recently got a fresh Maltese Falcon fix when I watched the BD. Boggie and John Huston did good work together. Last week I watched The Treasure of the Sierra Madre BD and was blown away again. Those are two great films!
There's an interesting sidelight to those films. In The Maltese Falcon, John Huston's father, the great actor, Walter Huston, played the bit part of the ship's captain who had the falcon. John cast Walter again in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre in the featured role of the old prospector, Howard. Walter Huston won his one and only Oscar for that performance. John also cast himself in a bit part as an American tourist who Fred C. Dobbs panhandled on three separate occasions without ever recognizing him.
What any of the foregoing has to do with The Adjustment Bureau escapes me, so forgive me for my meandering.
