Falcon Out West, The (1944)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A Texas millionaire is murder with rattlesnake venom so the Falcon (Tom Conway) heads to Texas to investigate. This film is a tad bit better than the previous two films due mostly to having a Western location, which adds a different touch to the typical murder mystery. Conway is more energized here and delivers a fine performance and even the supporting players are a step up from previous films with Cliff Clark stealing the show as the dimwitted but tough trying Detective. The mystery itself is pretty good with a lot of decent plot twists and even some stuff dealing with Indians who work on the ranch.
