Jones, Thomas The Maltese Falcon Revisited Literature- Other,
Media- Film,
Science
This program was created as part of the Big Read program. I have created a "next chapter" in the story of the Maltese Falcon and take on the role of a modern day forensic scientist who is visited by a relative of one of the characters from The Maltese Falcon. I use stills from the 1941 film as police photos, and I have created evidence that fits with the story. The audience and I explore the original story through the lens of forensic science and come to some intriguing conclusions about the person who visited me. This program is very popular with adults, who tend to really get into it.
