Sam Spade/Blond Satan

A flicker of thought at the end of Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon:

Bogie wasn’t mean enough. No way. Sam Spade, a.k.a. a blond Satan, has yet to be realized on screen, perhaps something that is impossible. It’s too tough for the pictures.

By the way, the part when he takes O’Shaughnessy in the bathroom and makes her take off all her clothes: true pulp moment.
