Good Falcon Entry
16 July 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

The Falcon and Goldie get mixed up with stolen jewelry and a series of mysterious murders surrounding the disappearance.

The movie's a brisk, better than average entry in the Falcon series, with a good little mystery, understated humor, and a drop-dead sexy Jane Greer. In fact, where else can you see creepy little noir icon Elisha Cook actually smooching with a gorgeous noir vamp like Greer. Then too, Cook gets an unusually assertive role here that he plays to the hilt. I really like the way his character uses his all-night radio program as a cover. It's a good little glimpse of old time radio. Also, watch for the slatternly Esther Howard (Mrs. Peabody) playing an uptown lady for once, that is, until her final scene. Of course, Conway, Corday, and Barnett are their usual reliable selves in this solid Falcon entry.
