Better than most
9 May 2002 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Tom Conway as the Falcon re-playing the part his brother George Sanders did in the first of this series -- The Gay Falcon -- breaking up a phony insurance scam. Supporting cast includes Rita Corday again. For some reason in this entry we see Vice Barnett playing the role of Goldie Locke that is much better done elsewhere by Edward Brophy. Best part of movie is watching Elisha Cook play the small insecure and obsessed man married to a beautiful woman -- Jane Greer. Cook gives you a glimpse of what he does better in more notable films, but his performance warrants your attention in this otherwise formula entry.
