Product Description

The Black Bird (1975)


David Giler    


Gordon Cotler (story),  David Giler, Dashiell Hammett, Don Mankiewicz


George SegalStéphane AudranLionel Stander, Lee Patrick, Elisha Cook Jr., Felix Silla
The Black Bird is a satirical sequel to The Maltese Falcon. George Segal plays Sam Spade Jr., who has inherited his dad's detective agency in a seedy section of San Francisco. The ubiquitous, priceless Maltese Falcon, which eluded Bogart and company in the 1941 film, surfaces once again. This time, Spade's friends and foes include femme fatales Anna and "Decoy Girl" (Stéphane Audran and Connie Kreski), sixtysomething historian Dr. Crippen (Signe Hasso, who looks terrific), and midget villain Litvak (Felix Silla, who played Cousin Itt on the TV series The Addams Family). Gags abound, including a climactic steal from Jaws. Two of the surviving stars of The Maltese Falcon, Lee Patrick and Elisha Cook Jr., recreate their roles in The Black Bird.

  1. Fianlly got it on DVD! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 20th 2018

    I know The Black Bird is considered "horribly" politically incorrect nowadays, but I rate it as one of the funniest parodies of another movie ("The Maltese Falcon" I've seen. The humor is so close to Mel Brooks' "Blazing Saddles". The funniest schtick is that old car that keeps rolling down a hill no matter how Sam turns the wheels. Now that I have it on DVD, it's even more fun to see this 70s movie so clearly. Thank you, Zeus.

    This movie is a spoof on the Maltese Falcon. We had it on tape and tried to find it on DVD as we are replacing all our tapes. We were delighted to find it on Zeus.

  6. The Black Bird (DVD) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Mar 13th 2017

    This is the best DVD version of this movie I
    have ever seen! Previous version I received
    (collector) was from VHS, better than nothing quality and watchable in spite of tape-damage and film print-age related issues. This version from Zeus DVD is a big improvement! Love it!
