This is more a review of the whole 'Falcon' series., 25 August 2012
Author: Apophos from Cheshire, England

Once again BBC 2 have re-shown all 13 of the Falcon movies (following on from 'The Saint' movies shown at the end of July), this time they are readily available on DVD released in the UK from Mar 12th 2012 to Apr 23rd 2012 as a part of the Hollywood Studio Collection which also included The Saint and Mr Moto movie series too, also from the 40's. The other three Falcon movies without 'Falcon' in the title released 1948-49 were neither shown nor have been released on DVD.

Just like 'The Saint' everyone seems to know 'The Falcon' by his reputation and the women take an immediate interest. It is interesting to compare all the Falcon movies as they all seem to have similar stories just different locations and different women, 'The Falcon' usually getting blamed for the murders until he uncovers the evidence which will clear him. The plots aren't too intricate but there usually seems to be a twist that Agatha Christie would have been proud of.

My favourite character is Goldie first played by Allen Jenkins (the voice of Officer Dibble in Top Cat) and later followed by Cliff Edwards (voice of Jiminy Cricket in Pinocchio).

Just like the Bond' girls all the women in the Falcon movies are beautiful, in particular Martha Vickers and Rita Corday. Watch out for a 17 year old Dorothy Malone in The Falcon and the Co-Eds.

All the movies are well worth a watch 'The Falcon and the Co'eds' was my favourite with 'Falcon Out West' being my least favourite and this one 'The Falcon's Adventure' being the last with a Lawrence as 'The Falcon'.
