Just spotted this article on The famous Maltese Falcon statuette which is rightly refereed to as 'one of the most valuable movie props in history.'

As you may know, the statuette sold for an incredible $4.1 million at Bonhams back in 2013 to a Mr Steve Wynn,a Las Vegas hotel and casino billionaire but, as this article questions-was that the real Falcon? And if not what did happen to the famed statuette? It's a great read detailing the fascinating unsolved mystery of the other Falcon statuettes in existence which, bizarrely, involves everything from Leonardo DiCaprio to the Black Dahlia murder.
