For someone who has seen the movie, this audio version might seem abruptly truncated and speedened up perhaps to meet time limitations.
For someone who hasn't seen the movie it probably is a good introduction to the novel and the movie.
P.S.: Being dated it gives an a vignette about the time it was recorded.

What did you love best about The Maltese Falcon?
The fact that they were able to get the entire story across in a half hour radio show!
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?
All of them!
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
You know this story as a film first!
Any additional comments?
This is a very interesting genre. The old radio shows are in and of themselves very fascinating. The fact that they would turn movies into the radio shows with the very same characters and actors is amazing! The story is cut down but in all honesty, the listener would not know it unless they had seen the movie. A person can get the full impact of this genius movie in a half hour!
