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

Actually there were 16 'Falcon' movies. George Sanders starred in the first 3 solo as The Falcon Guy Lawrence. Then real life brother Tom Conway co-starred with Sanders in the 4th The Falcon's Brother (1942) as his brother Tom Lawrence, thus giving Sanders an out whilst continuing the series. Conway took over the role and followed this one up with 9 more. Then there was the three final, independently produced films with John Calvert as The Falcon. See more »
When Tom gets thrown out of the car (in Chinatown?) he is right next to the curb. Next shot when he is getting up, he is further away from the curb. See more »

gets silly towards the end..
Tom Conway is the falcon again.. he shared this role with his brother George over the years. and sidekick Goldie (Ed Brophy ) is in this one! nice shot of the bridge in the opening credits! when the falcon and Goldie are vacationing in sf, they meet up with Annie, a small child, who is suddenly on her own. they try to help her get home, and of course, are accused of kidnapping! and now, a murder! speech impediments. fun scenery of chinatown. coit tower. lots of fun, going all over the city. mostly a fun time, although Annie started getting very precious towards the end, kind of like shirley temple, saying things a young little girl wouldn't say. they all end up on a ship which may be about to blow up, so they'd better hurry up and solve the case! directed by Joe Lewis. looks like this was the only Falcon he directed..... usually they direct a whole bunch of em! fun stuff.
