Good mystery
3 June 2004 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Unlike many of the other entries in the Tom Conway Falcon series, The Falcon and the Co-eds rises above mediocracy and delivers a good solid "B" mystery to the audience. The plot is decent, the acting is reasonably good, and interesting camera work contribute to an enjoyable viewing. There are sufficient clues and enough suspects to challenge the viewer to solve the mystery before the detective. Today's audience may find the treatment of young college women as sexist but such depictions probably represent mainstream society at the time. I have not recommended many of these Tom Conway Falcon movies, but I do this one. The scene in which the murderer is revealed is especially good.
