Storyline

On vacation, Tom Lawrence--The Falcon--and his Brooklyn-born sidekick 'Goldie' Locke meet cute with a little girl named Annie whose nurse has just been murdered. Accompanying Annie home, The Falcon is arrested for kidnapping, but bailed out of jail by a mysterious woman (Helm). A labyrinthine plot then unfurls involving silk smuggling, a steamship called the S.S. Citadel and an ex-bootlegger named Duke Monette. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Goofs

In the opening of the film, The Falcon and Goldie are on an express train, The San Franciscan, which is travelling at high speed. At no time does the interior of the car give the impression it is part of a moving train as none of the train staff or passengers have any trouble walking and the drinks served remain completely steady without any shaking from the train movement.

"Instead of a falcon why couldn't I have teamed up with a homing pigeon?"
17 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Good entry in the Falcon series that features the return of sidekick Goldie Locke. No, it's not Allen Jenkins, unfortunately. This time Goldie is played by Edward Brophy. He's not quite as good as Jenkins but he's fun in his way. Tom Conway certainly benefits from having someone to play off of. The plot to this one has the Falcon vacationing in San Francisco when he tries to help a little girl and gets mixed up in a plot involving murder and a mystery surrounding a former bootlegger. Good supporting cast includes Robert Armstrong, Fay Helm, and Jason Robards, Sr. Rita Corday returns for another Falcon movie, again playing a new character. Child actor Sharyn Moffett is very cute. This is an entertaining film in a series that had started to look like it was on its last legs when the Falcon was rambling around Texas and Mexico.
