View Full Version : A Maltese Falcon prop we overlooked

Ithink Joel Cairo's Greek passport from John Huston's "Maltese Falcon" would be a snazzy prop to have. There ar some good shots of it. I just need to research the colors for it now. Wish me luck.

I'll take the piano from Rick's cafe if anyone wants to give it to me.

Well now, if we are talking about golden age things given to us then I have a huge list. Including and not limited to the Black Beauty from the Green Hornet serials, any of Bogarts suits (heck, even Fred Mac Murray's (( or Jerry Calona's, for goodness sake)), William Powell's or Cary Grant's grace and maybe Ann Sheridan's love.
I'm not a picky man.

It looks like the cover of Cairo's greek passport is dark blue with white. I also have a 1920s prop cd from Cthulhulives.com that has passport visas that would work well for Joel Cairo.
I'm on my way.
By the way, Blackjack, for the piano prop make sure the letters of transit are hidden inside.

Actually, I beleive that piano is in the hands of some Hollywood lawyer. He was on "Hunt for Amazing treasures" or one of those shows and this guy bought it for about a buck at the time a few years back. It had been kicking around the back lots for 60 years and been repainted about a dozen times, but I guess he spent about 20,000 restoring it back to it's Casablanca glory. Lucky guy. I think this is the same guy who was searching for and finally found the original Cowardly Lion suit from the Wizard of Oz, this guys whole house was like a movie museum.
