The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of…

Humphrey Bogart’s Sam Spade may or may not have known he was paraphrasing Shakespeare at the time, but it was seventy-nine years ago today, on October 3, 1941 that John Huston’s adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon premiered in New York City. Just to go all English Lit teacher on you (not that I am one), it was Prospero in The Tempest who said “We are such stuff, as dreams are made on”. 

Methinks The Maltese Falcon will definitely be playing down in the writing lair tonight. That’s what dreams are made of for me.
