The Falcon Strikes Back is a 1943 American crime film directed by Edward Dmytryk.[2] It is the sixth film in the Falcon series and features Cliff Edwards filling in for Allen Jenkins as Goldie Locke.


Framed for the theft of valuable war bonds, Tom Lawrence (Tom Conway) hides out at a country resort. Here he discovers that Mia Bruger (Rita Corday), who engineered the frame, has been murdered by persons unknown. Snooping around a bit, Lawrence uncovers an insidious and widespread war-bond racket.[3]
