This marks the first Falcon film in which he has no sidekick or servant. See more »
At the start of the film when the airliner is shown crashing the model is of a conventional small twin-engined airliner. In the live action shots after the crash it has the unusual twin horizontal tail structures supported by several vertical surfaces of the Capelis XC-12, also used in Five Came Back (1939). See more »
Sixth film in the series has The Falcon (Tom Conway) investigation a mysterious plane that lands without a pilot, crew or passengers. That storyline is actually very interesting and highly entertaining but the film makes the mistake of telling the secret behind it at the twenty-minute mark. After that a second mystery starts and it never reaches the entertainment level of the first one. Conway is on par with his two previous films and the supporting cast is entertaining enough, if not exactly good. Cliff Clark takes over the role of the Inspector and does a fine job. Each of these films have had The Falcon followed around by his "fiance" and this plot joke is certainly wearing thin by now. The Falcon works on his own this time out so there's not too much humor in the film. The film picks up somewhat during the final act but even so it's not enough to make this one of the better films in the series.
