Product Description

When the Falcon (Tom Conway) is expertly framed for the murder of a bank messenger and the theft of a fortune in War Bonds, there's only one thing to do - get out of town fast! Tracking the real crooks to a mountain resort hotel, The Falcon and his trusty sidekick Goldie (Cliff Edwards) find themselves suddenly surrounded by suspicious characters. The Falcon sets out to investigate a mysterious German refugee (Andre Charlot) and a hotel manageress (Harriet Hilliard) with a shady past, - while Goldie finds himself promoted to house detective and picks a fight with the hot-tempered puppeteer (Edgar Kennedy) performing at the hotel! As the Falcon's investigations continue, something very strange happens. Someone starts killing the criminals...

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best of the series... 23 April 2012
By Robster
Format:DVD
Excellent entry here with Tom Conway taking the reigns and going solo as The Falcon for the first time. There's plenty of intruigue, the hotel setting works brilliantly and the tracking shot with Conway questioning a woman while walking along the side of a swimming pool is just superb, look out for it...

Great family viewing or rainy afternoon entertainment...

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Tom Conway's first solo flight in the role after briefly being paired up with his brother, The Falcon Strikes Back plays safe by sticking to the formula of the earlier George Sanders films: the Falcon's latest jealous fiancé will discover him with another woman who involves him in a mystery that will see the police suspect him of murder (will they never learn?), he'll send aforementioned fiancé off on a fool's errand to get her out of harm's way only for her to return with a vital clue that will help crack the case in time for him to swear off all other women before another damsel in distress enters stage left to test his resolve just in time for the end credits. But if it worked the last four times, why change now?

This time the fiancé is Jane Randolph's reporter, who is less pleasantly surprised than the new Falcon is when he's aroused from his hangover by a damsel in distress breaking into his bedroom. Unfortunately for him she's setting him up for a War Bonds heist, leading him and sidekick Goldie Locke (now in the form of Cliff Edwards, the voice of Jiminy Cricket) to follow a clue to a resort hotel where ex-cons, wheelchair-bound refugees and parsimonious puppeteers (Edgar Kennedy) are thrown into the mix as the bodies start piling up as he suddenly finds himself suspected of two sets of crimes committed by two different perpetrators. Along the way Richard Loo impersonates a rich Chinese businessman to flush out a suspect (leading to the immortal lime "Give Mr. Wong a bong and bring him along"), two passing tramps wax lyrical on the tyranny of possessions and a Goofy puppet makes a brief appearance (at the time RKO still distributed all of Disney's films).
