THE MALTESE FALCON by Dashiell Hammett   (1941)

Podcast Coming Soon

The Adventures of Sam Spade, Detective was a radio series based loosely on the private detective character Sam Spade, created by writer Dashiell Hammett for The Maltese Falcon. The show ran for 13 episodes on ABC in 1946, for 157 episodes on CBS in 1946-1949, and finally for 51 episodes on NBC in 1949-1951. Before the series, Sam Spade had been played in radio adaptations of The Maltese Falcon by both Edward G. Robinson in a 1943 Lux Radio Theater production and by Humphrey Bogart (in a 1941 Academy Award Theater production, both on CBS. Dashiell Hammett's name was removed from the series in the late 1940s because he was being investigated by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) for involvement with the Communist Party.
