Flowers left for Sydney Greenstreet
An actor with a truly distinct screen presence. Always liked any film in which you appeared, but I'm especially fond of The Maltese Falcon, and your performance as the man obsessed with finding "the dingus". Your delivery of those famous lines was spot on perfect, and brought the obsessed, erudite, mercenary character to life. It's one of my favorite films performances by any actor, in any film. Your malevolent chuckle, and impressive size helped a great deal IN "fleshing out" the character. John Huston was correct, as usual, in insisting that the original language of the novel, thought by some producers to be too complex and over the head of the average movie goes, be used in the film. And your delivery of the lines, and Bogart's, and the other actors brought the novel believably to life. I hope you enjoyed your life, as much as we enjoyed your work. RIP
