A game try but where's Warren William when you need him
28 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Lone Wolf, Michael Lanyard, is back from the war and has turned into Gerald Mohr in "The Notorious Lone Wolf," released in 1946.

Poor Lanyard - he's back for hours and he's suspected of stealing a rare sapphire from a museum, and then he's accused of murder. And all he really wants to do is make up for lost time with his girlfriend, played by Janis Carter. Lanyard spends the rest of the film trying to clear his name. One way he does it is to detain the Indians who have come for the gem and impersonate one of them, with Jameson (Eric Blore) his butler impersonating the other.

All in all, very pleasant. Mohr is attractive but here's my problem with him. He's not the same type as William, obviously - he's less sophisticated, there's more emphasis on the romance, and he seems younger. That would have all been great if Mohr had just played that. Instead, to me, he's trying to be smooth and sophisticated and it's coming off as artifice. He needed to play to his own strong qualities.

Entertaining.
