Brisk series B movie
29 January 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Tom Conway plays The Falcon , a womanising adventurer with a taste for the high life of night clubs ,fast cars and daring do .He comes to the rescue of a young woman --played by Madge Meredith-who has been entrusted with the formula for synthetic diamonds , invented by her father .The bad guys want the formula and only The Falcon's intervention prevents them from abducting her . They do succeed in killing her father and framing the Falcon for the crime however .He obtains the formula and sets out by train to Miami where he proposes to hand it over to a trusted friend of the inventor .The bad guys try to steal it en route without success and there are further deaths before the lively fist fight climax on board a yacht where Ms Meredith is incarcerated , It passes the time well enough but there is one ludicrous bit of plotting involving an alligator farm ,that is an insult to the intelligence .Get past that and you might well enjoy this vintage B picture . The acting might politely be described as functional

It was the last of the Falcon movies leaving Dick Tracy as the only celluloid sleuth from RKO studios
