I expect that this will be a difficult one to pick for everyone. Huston has directed a lot of great films.

I'm going with The Maltese Falcon.

Okay, this one's really tough... there are a few others that are old favorites, but I think I have to go with:

THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE (1948)

I only saw this for the first time about 10 or 15 years ago, but I remember my initial impression was, "Wow.  Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!!"

Excellent, excellent film.

I could pick a favorite in every decade he worked. Because I can't, uh... REFLECTIONS IN A GOLDEN EYE.

THE MALTESE FALCON

I don't believe I've ever seen a book so faithfully interpreted on the silver screen as this one.

Can't do it.  I've typed 4 different titles so far and then erased each one.

When I first thought of posting him I figured Bogie fans would have trouble picking.

For me it's an easy one;

THE ASPHALT JUNGLE

an annual watch.

THE MALTESE FALCON.

Though I must confess it is practically tied with a different film already mentioned. (And it isn't THE TREASURE OF THE SIERRA MADRE.)

Escape to Victory. So far from his best film, but nonetheless, the one I'd take to a desert island.
