Parents need to know that this crime drama has some intense scenes and a little drinking. While there's little in the way of objectionable content, this film noir is too dark for little ones.

Implication that Spade was having an affair with Archer's wife.

Violence

Some suspense, scuffles, threats of violence.

Language

Social Behavior

Subtle prejudice against less-than macho Joel Cairo and Wilmer, who are (in the mildest 1940 terms) implied to be gay.
