Goofs

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).

In danger of losing the plot!
25 March 2007 | by (Derby, UK) – See all my reviews

Yes, the plot was a little "messier" - as well as the print in this entry in the Falcon series [#6/13], but in spite of all that still very enjoyable. The gang was all there – Lawrence, Clark and Gargan, plus regular Falconite Jean Brooks, the RKO staircase from Ambersons/Cat People was seen to good advantage in Clarence Kolb's house - no Goldie however.

Passenger plane crash lands at airport at the beginning of the film and is found to be literally running on empty – a wealthy industrialist who was on board is presumed kidnapped, especially when ransom notes are left for his daughter. The Falcon is asked to help solve the mystery by 2 beautiful women. It gets … slightly complicated from here, what with murders, a bitter daughter of a missing employee, stolen securities, a broken padlock, and a foreign antique dealer with 2 trigger happy sons but a rather splendidly cluttered shop. Not a second in the 67 minutes was wasted! The only thing that really grated was the Falcon's girlfriend played by Amelita Ward laid her jealousy on with a trowel, and from being amusing at first got irritating – there was a seriousness there I never liked! Favourite bit: Carefree Gargan helping himself to beer and sandwiches at the gambling den and continually interrupting his boss Clark.

Not the best Falcon film but not too bad, anyway well worth watching for fans and well worth avoiding for enemies.
