5.0 out of 5 stars Great entry in the RKO Falcon series... 11 Aug 2011
By Robster
Format:DVD
This is a solid entry in the RKO Falcon series with Tom Conway heading West to solve another murder. The pace is good, plot entertaining and the atmosphere comes through in heaps.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Forward my mail to Havana!" 5 Sep 2014
Format:DVD
Smooth-talking snooper, chain-smoking babe-magnet, cool-as-a-cucumber investigator, dapper sophisticate, international playboy ... yes, it's The Falcon and he's 'out west' i.e. in Texas (actually the Ray Corrigan Ranch, Simi Valley) as he aims to solve yet another murder mystery.
The Falcon attends the Flamingo Club in NY to discuss business with a female client about her rich ex-husband Tex (Lyle Talbot) when he appears drunk and promptly dies, the victim of a rattlesnake bite. Escaping old foe Inspector Timothy 'check his apartment, check his club, check his girlfriend's apartments' Donovon (Cliff Clark) and following Tex's girlfriend (Carole Gallagher) takes him to 'Texas'. Cue, the clever merging of a traditional murder mystery in a western setting. This includes a stagecoach chase, native Americans (there's a running joke about 'How') and even the Falcon riding horses (who knew he'd be such an expert horseman?). Following him to Texas is Donovon and his dumb-as-an-ox sidekick Detective Bates (Ed Gargan).
Who wants the cattle baron's land? Who's taking potshots at The Falcon? Who's sending a message using a tomahawk and a scalp? Is it the ex-wife (Joan Barclay), the fiancee, his partner Colby (Minor Watson), his lovely daughter (an early appearance by Barbara Hale), his ranch hands, the lawyer or is it someone else? In a little over an hour you will find out.
Again directed by William Clemens, The Falcon Out West, whilst not one of the best in the series, is still an enjoyable and entertaining romp. No 8 of 13*, the performances and the direction are fine although I wish there were more wisecracks (you get more one-liners when whoever's playing Goldie appears).

This particular film was well acted.The storyline was also good.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The Falcon Out West sees Tom Conway's now sidekickless debonair playboy sleuth trying to unravel the death of a very rich and very loud Texan from a rattlesnake bite. Which might just seem like bad luck rather than foul play if he weren't in New York's Flamingo Club whooping it up with his young bride to be, who naturally becomes the cops' favourite suspect and just as naturally has the Falcon dashing to her aid. After a cracking start things set off down a more clichéd furrow once the various suspects all travel to the victim's dude ranch and motives are uncovered and deadly warnings issued amid a garnish of fish out of water clichés before the guilty party is unmasked and the Falcon finds himself accosted by a desperate senorita in the closing minute and off to Havana (though he'd only make it as far as Mexico in the next entry in the series). It's a shame that what started out as one of the most promising in the series couldn't keep up the ingenuity and momentum, but it's still a pleasant enough hour and a bit even if it falls short of a series highlight. The eagle eyed may want to keep an eye out for Lawrence Tierney in a bit part, not as a tough guy but as an orchestra leader in the opening scene.
