Quotes from

Kathryn Mason: Richard! I was so afraid, I thought...
[Richard approaches her]
Kathryn Mason: Why, you're walking, Richard, you're walking without help. How did you get here? Why are you here?... No, Richard, don't!


Prof. Norman Holsworth: You see, Doctor Hamilton belongs to the Freudian school of psychology, he believes that love rather than money is the root of all evil.
Evelyn Turner: It's nothing of the king. Beg your pardon, Doctor Hamilton, but love doesn't always cause unhappiness and trouble. It's been one of man's inspirations for centuries. Why it's been the basis of some of the greatest stories ever written. Look at Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra, Abelard and Eloise.
Richard Mason: Yes but look what happened to them.
Evelyn Turner: Oh Dick that's not fair. You know what I mean, it doesn't matter what happens to people as long as they have something to live for.
Dr. Mark Hamilton: But they didn't live for it, they died for it.


Richard Mason: [on the phone with Lt. Egan] Hello Egan, this is Mason, somebody's been in my house tonight. No nothing has been taken, something's been added, the wedding ring my wife wore when she went away.

Facts about

Jack L. Warner had Joan Crawford, who had just joined Warner Bros. and was looking for her first role at the studio, in mind for the role of Kathryn Mason, and sent the script for the film to her. However, after reading the script, Crawford told her agent to tell Warner that "Joan Crawford never dies in her movies, and she never ever loses her man to anyone".
The statue of the Maltese Falcon is clearly displayed as an ornament on the top of the wooden filing cabinet in Det. Lt. Egan's office when Richard visits. A few years earlier, Bogart and Greenstreet has appear in the movie about this statue, by the same name. No reference to it in the dialogue is made.
