The Falcon in Danger
17 July 2020 | by guswhovianSee all my reviews

When a plane crash lands without anybody onboard, the Falcon investigates after a ransom is demanded for an industrialist who was onboard.

This was probably my favorite entry in the series I've seen so far. The plot is pretty simple, but it was paced well and had enough action to keep me interested. I once again enjoyed Jean Brooks' performance, and Amelita Ward was fun as a Southerner who's engaged to our hero (a far cry from her performance in The Falcon and the Co-Eds). One thing though - why do the villains/spies in cheap 40s mystery/thriller films always hideout in antiques shops?
