Always liked Greenstreet and Thelma Ritterl. Both started acting whem most actors are retiring. They are two truly great talents, and I loved Greenstreet and Lorre in Maltese Falcon . They created mood and atmosphere with their voices and facial expressions alone. To this day, I couldn`t tell you the plot of Falcon - but who cares! Teach
