Product Description

Product Description

First UK DVD release of this 1945 crime from RKO Pictures. A further installment to the bestselling Falcon series. Debonair detective Tom 'The Falcon' Lawrence (Tom Conway) is back in another instalment of the brilliant series - and this time, he's facing one of his most challenging cases. Heading out to San Francisco by train, Tom and his sidekick 'Goldie' Lock befriend a little girl called Amber Marshall. When the kid's nurse is murdered, Tom finds himself drawn into a web of danger - there's kidnapping, killing and a network of illegal silk smugglers. The Falcon plunges into action and brings things to an explosive climax!

Tom Conway is as brilliant as ever here in what has to be said is not the best Falcon adventure of the series, but hey, that doesn't stop it being leagues above other B-Movie series of this period.

Here, The Falcon and Goldie get mixed up in a kidnapping case and things end up in 'explosive' fashion... Great fun.

Travelling to San Francisco on the aptly named San Franciscan (probably the widest train in the world) The Falcon (Tom Conway) and his companion Goldie 'so you're the one who ate up all the porridge' Locke (Edward Brophy in his 1st of 2 appearances as Goldie Locke) are aiming to 'swing on The Golden Gate' but instead stumble across orphan Annie (Sharyn Moffett) and a murder in a sleeper car. Despite Goldie's protestations - 'try and forget you're The Falcon for a while' - The Falcon winds up arrested, bailed, drugged and beaten as things take a turn for the worse. Thus multiple complications ensue and the bodies pile up (even a butler!).
Unfortunately, no Ed Gargan (Detective Bates) or Cliff Clark (Inspector Donovon) in this one but it does feature Rita Corday (4th of 5 Falcon appearances - all different characters), Hollywood has-been Robert Armstrong and the aforementioned Edward Brophy as the hilarious Goldie Locke. Directed by cult auteur Joseph H Lewis (Gun Crazy, The Big Combo), The Falcon in San Francisco is one of the best in the series as this one has many elements of film noir - the labyrinthine plot, the capable, dangerous and domineering femme fatale character Doreen Temple (Faye Helm, a cross between Hillary Brooke and Gayle Sondergaard), the double crosses, the multiple deaths etc. The violent scene where The Falcon is drugged and beaten up is pure film noir. Despite it being the 11th of 13, the series shows no sign of letting up and still displays ample quality especially the droll script by Robert Kent and Ben Markson. After a couple of average entries - The Falcon Out West, The Falcon In Mexico - this one has the series back on (the Union Pacific) track.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 21 Aug. 2012
Format: DVD
It may be the eleventh entry in the series in just five years, but The Falcon in San Francisco shows RKO’s favourite The Saint knockoff still ticking over very nicely as playboy amateur sleuth Tom Conway finds himself aiding yet another damsel in distress from various villains. But this time rather than a glamorous potential romantic interest the damsel in distress is a little girl (Sharyn Moffett) who claims she and her older sister (Rita Corday) are kept virtual captives by her nanny and the butler before changing her story several times, and just to shake up the formula a little bit more this time he even loses his debonair air after he’s unable to talk himself out of a vicious beating from some hired hoods. To add to his woes he’s arrested for kidnapping the child (“But he’s a nice man.” “They always are”) when he tries to take her home after the aforementioned nanny is murdered en route to San Francisco and bailed out by Fay Helm’s femme fatale with her own reasons for wanting him out of jail. Throw in Robert Armstrong’s shipping line manager, a notorious bootlegger who may be trying to get back into the country by one of his ships and Edward Brophy’s sidekick Goldie Locke back in the picture and trying to solve his income tax problems by proposing to every vaguely eligible woman he meets and in director Joseph H. Lewis’ hands it’s an entertaining programmer that zips along at 65 minutes without wasting any of them.
