The Falcon's Alibi
24 July 2020 | by guswhovianSee all my reviews

The Falcon is hired by a wealthy woman's secretary to protect her emplyoer's jewelry, but he finds himself under suspicion when multiple murders occur.

The Falcon's Alibi has several problems: the plot device of the Falcon being suspected by the police of murder is wearing a bit thin, Edward Brophy was a much better Goldie Locke then Vince Barrett and the plot is confusing. However, it still manages to be entertaining. Tom Conway was typically good, Elisha Cook gets to ham it up as a insane disc jockey and a pre-Out of the Past Jane Greer was good as a nightclub singer.

It's not high art, but it sure is fun.
