The Falcon in Germany
8 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mike Waring, alias The Falcon, is a government agent assigned to look into the death of a man named Braunheim who was shot in the American zone while trying to flee the Soviet zone of Germany, what became East Germany. The coroner determines that Braunheim was killed with a Luger and not by a rifle as he would have been had a Soviet soldier killed him. Mike and the coroner find $100,000 secreted in Braunheim's trench coat. So now it's all about the money and about Soviet spies who want to retrieve the money. Clues lead to Otto Koenig's tobacco shop and Mike visits the shop and pretends to be a Soviet spy. Charles McGraw as tough guy Waring does an adequate job as Waring but comes across as pretty bland. For me, the Falcon will always be George Sanders or Tom Conway from the Falcon movies - both of whom were debonair and smooth talking, which McGraw is certainly not. In the movies, the Falcon was named Gay Lawrence (Sanders) or Tom Lawrence (Conway) although in the radio series, his name was Mike Waring. Thus far I've seen only four episodes of this series and while somewhat historically interesting, it's just not that good.
