Through the examination of one particular scene in this movie from a cinematographic point of view, this paper looks at how the camera can often do more for the movie than script and movement.

From the Paper:

"The theme of this movie is that some people will do anything to get what they want, and that evil must be faced and defeated. The item desired in this movie is a statue of a falcon made by knights templar in 1539 for Charles V as a gift. It was supposed to be made of gold and encrusted with valuable jewels. The scene chosen for mise en scene analysis is about a third of the way through the movie, when Spade visits Brigid at her apartment for the second time. During this scene, Spade knows more about what is going on than he did before, but has not revealed all he has learned to Brigid. The scene gives the feeling of seeing events through Spade's eyes."
