Director George Lucas
tipped his hat to Hammett by naming one of his companies "Black Falcon" after the black bird in "The Maltese Falcon" (also the Star Wars space ship "The Millenium Falcon"). The code name for Star Wars' "Return of the Jedi" was "Blue Harvest", a reference to Hammett's "Red Harvest".
