Beware miscreants - The Falcon is still on the hunt!

Great selection of the final "Falcon" 1940's mystery movies starring Tom Conway March 23 2013
By Midwest Reviewer - Published on
The Falcon Out West 1944
The Falcon In Mexico 1944
The Falcon In Hollywood 1944
The Falcon In San Francisco 1945
The Falcon's Alibi 1946
The Falcon's Adventure 1946

I've always enjoyed the old Falcon mystery movies series from the 1940's, especially after Tom Conway took over the role. This DVD set is all Tom Conway and presents his final films as the Falcon. These are all well-made films that move along at a rapid pace (especially "The Falcon In Hollywood"), have interesting characters, and some comic relief. My favorite is "The Falcon In San Francisco", but there's not one of them that's a bad film, and they're fun to watch late in the evening when you don't want to see any of the "entertainment" offered on broadcast TV or cable.

This is a 2-DVD set with 3 films on each disc. Although the old RKO films are great, the packaging of the DVD set is below average and could have easily been made more appealing by Warner Brothers simply by choosing a more colorful lobby card for the cover. Same with the first volume that was issued last year. And I don't believe any "restoration" work was done on these films for DVD release. I recorded the first four of these six films off TCM about 5 years ago onto DVD-Rs, and TCM presented them in high quality; I think the quality of what TCM presented is about as good as the official DVD release now. I'm also wondering about the final three Falcon films from 1948 and 1949, "The Devil's Cargo", "Appointment With Murder", and "Search For Danger", all of which starred John Calvert as the Falcon. I've never seen them, maybe they aren't worthwhile series entries, but could have been a nice bonus to include them here as a third disc which I'm sure wouldn't be any skin off anyone's teeth.

Highly recommended. If you have ever enjoyed watching just one of Tom Conway's "Falcon" movies or like old 1940s black and white mystery films, don't skip picking this up.

One of my favorite DVD collections was the first septet of THE FALCON mysteries starring George Sanders and then passing the torch to his on-screen and real-life brother Tom Conway assuming the role. The first volume left me, of course, wanting to own the rest of the series. I was hoping that Warner Brothers would follow with a Volume 2, and now it has finally arrived and was definitely worth the wait.

Each one of these films here is a delight, with Conway sleuthing his way through various scenarios and proving to be an amusing lothario in each one. My particular favorite is "The Falcon in Hollywood", because it is not only a nifty-little mystery, but it is also a behind-the-scenes look at the RKO studio lot of the era. Very cool.

Although only 2 discs, the brief running time of each film makes for all six films to fit on the dual-layer DVDs with fine quality (and a great value!). All 6 films in the set have been remastered for the occasion, and are a distinct improvement from the fuzzy, contrasty television broadcasts (telling sign, no more cue-marks at reel changes!). Not only is the picture far improved, but the sound is robust and crystal clear, far beyond normal expectation for RKO B-pictures that are nearly 70 years old.

For any fan of The Falcon, or other mystery series of similar vintage, this collection is recommended with sincere praise.

I've seen the George Sanders Saint collection, Sanders and Tom Conway Falcon edition, and now Conway's Falcon reason I enjoyed this last entry might be a slight preference for Tom over George..but that's pretty subjective...the primary reason has to do with the way the movies were filmed...many of the the early films of the series were shot on the studio lots with the standard claustrophobic sets...perhaps war restrictions played a part in the Conway Falcon episodes, you have what appears to be on location settings from out West, Mexico, San Francisco, and Miami...certainly not the closet capers of the earlier films....and as I said I do prefer Tom to George...Sanders seems a little lucky and heavy afoot at times, while Conway is more crafty, always with a trick up his sleeve..I believe the writing for Conway's last six films easily trumps the earlier works, with only the annoying sidekick common to all of them...and you won't want to miss Jane Greer in The Falcon's Alibi from 1946..She's as beautiful as her defining role a year later in Out of the Past...also in this film are a number of great swing tunes.

I love old movies from the 30's and 40's. These are some of the best. I had originally seen many of these movies on HBO and Cinemax late at night and had recorded about 8 of them on VHS. I bought the fist volume of Falcon movies when it came out and was delighted to have some of the movies I recorded now on DVD plus a few extra. This collection replaces the rest of the VHS recordings I had upgrading them to DVD and adds a few more new ones to my collection. It is nice to be ride of a few more old VHS tapes of movies I love that were hard to find on DVD. There are still a few Falcon movies made back in the 40's that are not yet included, hopefully there will be a volume 3 out soon to complete the set.

The continuation of a great series. Who needs George Sanders when you've got Tom Conway. Tom who? Doesn't matter. If this is his only claim to fame, so be it. Enjoy!
