Falcon in San Francisco, The (1945)

** (out of 4)

A child's nanny is murdered and the girl kidnapped so naturally The Falcon (Tom Conway) is the main suspect so he must set out to find the truth. This is yet another tired entry in the RKO series and as usual the mystery is far more complicated than it needs to be. Conway sleepwalks his way through the role but I can't really blame him. The supporting cast isn't much better, although we do get Robert Armstrong in a small role. This film tries to bring some comedy back into the mix but it doesn't play out too well but the ending of the film works out very well.
