Moclips and the Falcon

Posted by Ken Campbell December 17, 2008 0 Comment 735 views

The Falcon and the Snowman was an ’80’s movie about a pair of semi-pro spies and poor decisions, a true story about two young men from wealthy California families who sold classified government information to the Soviet Union during the mid 1970’s. It’s a fascinating story of greed and misguided passions, and the film is a worthy portayal of the actual events.

Christopher Boyce, the “Falcon,” ended up in Moclips. Until he was captured, that is, and hustled off to a CIA debriefing and a glass cell. Ever since I found out about this part of the story, I’ve always seen Moclips as a place to hide out.
