Is this image from Maltese Falcon or The Big Sleep?

Have been in a discussion with my father about this image.


On various sites, I've seen it attributed to both films. I tried to speed watch my copies of both films to find the scene... but must have missed it. And Bogart's outfit in each film is very similar. I say it's from Maltese Falcon, my father claims The Big Sleep.

Hoping some of my fellow film nerds can help me resolve this. Thanks!

The Maltese Falcon, according to this page: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/DVDReview ... falcon.htm

(I found it by doing a Google image search)

I immediately thought it was The Maltese Falcon when I saw the picture. And Bogart seems to wear a darker tie in The Big Sleep.

Looks like the Falcon to me too, can't see Hawks framing a shot like that.
