The 1941 Maltese Falcon Prop

Our 1941 Falcon prop is screen accurate because we made it the same way the original was made;  we started with a full detail Falcon prop then sanded it down.

Director John Houston felt the Original Maltese Falcon prop had too much detail and had it sanded nearly smooth, dramatically reducing the chest feathers. 

We applied these same techniques to our Original Maltese Falcon, resulting in the screen accurate replica with an authenticated history that you see here.

The Original Maltese Falcon Prop

This is the Real Maltese Falcon™, our flagship produce since its introduction in 1963.   Cast from an original prop that had been part of Century Prop's inventory since the 1940s.

In early 1941 Artist Fred Sexton was commissioned by his friend director John Houston to create a new, aggressive Maltese Falcon Statue for Houston's directorial debut, The Maltese Falcon (1941).

When Sexton presented John Houston with the finished Falcon Houston was impressed, but not satisfied.


Important Notice:  Production and Shipping Delays Due to Worldwide Supply Chain Interruptions

Thanks to delays in delivery of our polyurathane casting resin we are experiencing delays in both production and shipping during the holiday season.   Currently we are running up to 15 days over our shipping estimates due to a combination of delayed and missed orders and carrier delays of our shipments.  We are working to fill all orders as quickly as possible and thank you for your patience as we work through these supply line issues.  

Since early summer our vendors have been unable to meet our resin delivery schedule requirements.  We are running up to 60 days behind on these deliveries.  At this point it has not halted production althogher as we stock 90 days worth of resin, but we are eating into our reserves a bit more each day.  Unfortunately we are facing shortages in November and December when we need our stock the most.  We will update this entry as conditions change, but  if you are planning on giving a Haunted Studios™ Maltese Falcon this holiday season now is the time to get your order in.

We want to thank you all for your continued support of The Haunted Studios.
