End of the series
6 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Lone Wolf and His Lady" was the tired ending to the Lone Wolf series in 1949, with Ron Randell and Alan Mowbray taking the roles of Michael Lanyard and butler Jamison. Truth to tell, it just didn't work.

In the plot, Lanyard agrees to tell an attractive reporter (June Vincent) his life story, and as some extra publicity, she asks him to unveil a world-famous diamond at an exhibit. You can guess the rest. The diamond is stolen, Lanyard is the chief suspect, and he spends the rest of the film clearing his name.

Ron Randell didn't have enough presence for a larger than life character like the Lone Wolf, plus with his mustache, he looked kind of sleazy. I much preferred Warren William. And while Alan Mowbray is good, he's no Eric Blore. William and Blore had a very strong chemistry.

William Frawley plays Inspector Crane -- I had actually never seen him do anything except Fred Mertz and his role in My Three Sons. He was his gruff self. June Vincent, whom I thought bore a strong resemblance to the British actress Ann Todd, came off the best with her breezy line delivery.

Disappointing.
