The Falcon – This hard boiled spy drama began as an RKO Radio Pictures theatrical serial in the 1940s, went on radio in 1945, and then came to TV ten years later in this syndicated series. Charles McGraw starred in many motion pictures before and after this short-lived series, including The Killers (1946) Ma and Pa Kettle Go To Town, (1950), The Bridges at Toko-Ri (1955), It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963). He also starred in the television version of Casablanca (1955) taking over Humphrey Bogart’s role as Rick. The know-it-all Wikipedia does not even mention his long-forgotten role as The Falcon. McGraw plays undercover agent Michael Waring in this television series from 1954. There are very few of these episodes still available. This collection includes eight episodes on 2 DVDs.
