The Maltese Falcon

The Greatest Noir Story of all Time!

Special Guest Star:

Lynne Stewart, star of "PeeWee's Playhouse" and "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" joins the cast of Fake Radio for the third show of our 2019 season in both PDX and Hillsboro.

In 1941, Humphrey Bogart and Mart Astor lit up the screen with John Huston’s masterpiece “The Maltese Falcon”. The film won three Academy Award Nominations and grossed nearly $1 million at the box office, a massive sum for its era. It cemented Bogart as the biggest star of the decade and remains, to this day, one of the best known film noir classics.

In 1943, The Lux Radio Theater presented their version of the Dashiell Hammett classic, starring Edward G. Robinson as Sam Spade. 76 years later, Fake Radio is thrilled to recreate the entire 1943 CBS radio broadcast — commercials and all! — with our special guest star Lynne Stewart, from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” and “PeeWee’s Playhouse”. 

Featuring top talent from both Portland and Los Angeles, Fake Radio will re-enact two 30min episodes of this historic radio show the old-fashioned way: dressed in period clothing and standing with scripts in hand in front of old microphones. Sound and music effects will make you feel like you're watching a live radio recording from the 1940s. We'll even re-create the old commercials! Just be ready for the cast to occasionally go off-script!

  • Doors at 7:00pm, curtain at 8:00pm
