Falcon Quest

This rat pack, deterred, has long lusted
For this statue, a bird, jewel-encrusted
No ifs, ands, or buts,
They're a little bit nuts
And that means their word can't be trusted. 

Sam Spade, Joel Cairo, Brigid O'Shaughnessy, and Kasper Gutman all want the black bird: Humphrey Bogart, Peter Lorre, Mary Astor, and Sydney Greenstreet in The Maltese Falcon (John Huston; 1941).
