dave j Second film of the Gay Falcon movies starring George Sanders as the title character along with his sidekick "Goldie" and the fiance he intends to marry. This time it involves a secret formula involving replicating diamonds. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Second in the charming Falcon mystery series is heavy on comedy, with George Sanders interrupting his wedding plans to instead solve a mystery. Nothing brilliant, but entertaining nonetheless. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Sanders is ALWAYS GREAT!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
