"Dedicated to private eyes everywhere - those hard-hitting detectives who, like Mike Waring, risk their lives to aid law enforcement agencies."
Cherub-faced, blue-eyed World War II hero Les Damon plays detective Michael Waring - better known as The Falcon. Damon played the role with style, pulling off the character's transition from private eye to Army Intelligence operative with panache.
This collection of 16 digitally remastered episodes begins with Waring's wars against domestic enemies, including gambling bosses, arsonists, con artists, drug dealers, and killers. And, it's just those exploits that prepare him for his work as a spy - flushing out traitors and impersonators, protecting endangered allies, and tracking down communists threatening the free world!
Supporting players include Bret Morrison, Lesley Woods, Everett Sloane, Santos Ortega, Mandel Kramer, Leon Janney, Elspeth Eric, Larry Haines, Jackson Beck, and Paul McGrath - with Ralph Bell as Waring's arch enemy, communist mastermind Robert Vaughan.
Includes a Program Guide by radio historian and voice recognition expert William Nadel.
