Great selection of the final "Falcon" 1940's mystery movies starring Tom Conway March 23 2013
By Midwest Reviewer - Published on Amazon.com
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.

WONDERFUL! MORE FALCON MYSTERIES NOW REMASTERED! March 30 2013
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
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.

golden age classics finally available. April 29 2013

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.

A Good Collection Sept. 15 2013
By Ian J. Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
There are two movie characters who are nearly interchangeable - the Saint and the Falcon. In fact, I can see some similarities in plot lines between several of the films. George Sanders did both characters near simultaneously with style and debonair charm. For whatever reason, his depictions as the Falcon were taken over by Tom Conway, who ended up doing a very nice job filling in for the iconic Sanders. Mr Conway's style was almost identical to that of Mr Sanders, debonair and witty. And the Falcon hardly ever met a woman he didn't try to charm. The Falcon is one of those characters that always seems able to get mixed up in crimes, murders and whatnot despite just simply minding his own business. Many beautiful women seek him out to solve the mysteries that endanger or perplex them. While there is some similarity to all the movies - people need help, Falcon saves the day, Falcon frustrates bumbling cops - there is enough difference to keep it all entertaining. And of course, it's all just a pretense to display the undeniable Falcon charm. Worthy of space on your DVD shelf (along with the Sanders collection, too!)

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!
