Frances H A pretty poor excuse for a murder mystery, but what I found interesting was that the Falcon's brother played by Tom Conway sounded so exactly like the Falcon, played by George Sanders, and looked something like Sanders as well. At first I thought they just had Sanders voice over Conway's speaking part, but why would they do that? The answer was simple--they didn't--Sanders and Conway were brothers in actuality. No wonder their voices sounded almost identical and they resembled each other so much in facial features, too! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/18/21 Full Review dave j Fourth and last appearance of George Sanders playing The Falcon role with Tom Conroy taking over as his brother being involved in espionage ring. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member the falcon's brother takes over Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Fourth Falcon film and the final appearance by George Sanders as The Falcon before it was taken over by his real-life brother Tom Conway, who portrays the Falcon's brother "Tom". Entertaining enough, but Conway is not quite as good as Sanders, even though he is something of a look and sound alike. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Real brothers George & Tom are both great actors Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Transitional movie as George Sanders hands over the detective reigns to his brother. This investigation is good but inferiors to the three films gone before. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews
