The Maltese Falcon

Please read chapter 1 of The Maltese Falcon for Monday and through chapter 6 for next Friday.  There will be a quiz on chapters 1-6.

Whom does Sam meet at John’s Grill for lunch?

Who lives on Post Street in this apartment building?


The Hunter-Dulin Building at 111 Sutter Street where Sam has his office.

Who went to the Geary Theater to see a show?

What happened near the Stockton tunnel (Burritt Street)?

Inside Sam’s apartment: the view from Hyde Street.
