    Well, Wilmer, I’m sorry indeed to lose you. But I want you to know I couldn’t be fonder of you if you were my own son. Well, if you lose a son it’s possible to get another. There’s only one Maltese falcon.
    John Huston (1906–1987)

    Anna C. Brackett (1836–1911)

    Well, Wilmer, I’m sorry indeed to lose you. But I want you to know I couldn’t be fonder of you if you were my own son. Well, if you lose a son it’s possible to get another. There’s only one Maltese falcon.

    My falcon now is sharp and passing empty,
    And till she stoop she must not be full-gorged,
    For then she never looks upon her lure.
