    See early Falcon Films first. #2, "A Date With The Falcon" (1941, 4 stars), is delightfully witty! Nightclub lounge lizard, George Saunders seeks sex, while willing women with wasp waists, push-up bras, and long legs, entice his preying mantis stalking (and viewers' fantasies). But these playmates are secondary, (ladies' man's procrastinationitis), vs. his primary priorities, society sleuthing, while slyly evading persistent police procedures. Savvy Saunders' sexual flirtations are coupled with profit-motivating private eyeing. In contrast to salary-guaranteed, checklist cops, that seem marginally motivated, so dim. Bumbling police practices are usually pattern-oriented, prone to simplistic, jumps to judgments. Personifying pouncing-on-what-is-in-front-of-them occurs with almost obsessive attempts to arrest the hero, the detective that deductively, frequently beats the cops to crime scenes. Chief cop's dim-bulb buddy, Bates, often offers unintentionally ironically droll quips, stimulating viewers' smiles. So both public and private investigators have funny fools, foils, friends, playing to the pleasure of alert audiences. And the Falcon Films' casting classic characters really know how to deliver, communicating comedy with appropriate body language responses, punctuating punchlines. Plus there are real, who-done-it mysteries for Falcon and us to solve. Thanks TCM for showing so many of the best of the classic, Falcon Films.

    I would love to see other Falcon Movies. This one was quite good and full of humor. They just don't make good movies like this now a days! Nothing can compare with the movies of those days (those were better than that of today). Very well made movie and perfect casting.

  • Love George Sanders

    I love George Sanders on the screen! Wish the Falcon series would be put on DVD! I already have the Saint series. George Sanders was great in both roles!

    Not bad entry in The Falcon series. Would love to see all The Falcon films released to DVD.
