A statuette of a bird featured in the classic 1941 detective thriller The Maltese Falcon sold for more than $4m at auction on Monday. The final price on the prop was $4,085,000, according to Bonhams auction house. The winning bid came over the phone.

The black figurine is one of two known statuettes made for the film, but the only one confirmed by Warner Brothers' archives as having appeared in it, Bonhams said. It has a Warner Brothers inventory number etched into the base and bears the name of the movie, which starred Humphrey Bogart as private detective Sam Spade.

In the film, the statuette is a "priceless" work of art, which is the cause of several murders, and at one point changes hands for $10,000.

A short article from the Guardian!
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!
