Some general information on this show. Recently, I was fortunate to find a video tape of this show at a flea market. There were supposed to be two shows on it but there were only one and a half as someone had erased half of the first show The Reno Story. I would have liked to see the whole thing, as I like movies that take place on a train. In this one a man had stolen what he thought was a box of bonds of value but it was actually a time bomb. He ended up taking the train and the part that became viewable on the video had Louis Hayward as The Lone Wolf searching suitcases on the train with the help of the Conductor and, I couldn't believe it, Ernest Borgnine as Saks. Anyway, they didn't know what the culprit looked like so it was a race against time to find the bomb in time. The second movie was titled Death Of A Lawyer which had Hayward summoned by an old friend who was a criminal lawyer. He told the Lone Wolf that he was sure someone had been trying to kill him. Sure enough he was run down by a hit and run car. Then Hayward had to figure out who was the murderer. He sought the help of a beautiful friend named Janice, played by Patricia Knight. She reminded me of the beautiful Lola Albright who played opposite Craig Stevens in Peter Gunn. Peter Gunn came on in 1958 and The Lone Wolf is shown as 1955 on IMDb, so I wonder if the writers took a page out of this book. In any case it works in both shows. I have submitted both episodes to IMDb along with cast as they are not shown as of this writing. At the end of each show is the familiar Roman numerals to show the year of date for the show. The tape was an old one and numbers that small are not clear. But one thing was obvious, there were two numbers after the L (fifty) in the Roman numerals. It could only be 1954 with the two numbers being IV and not the one digit of V for 1955. However, the IMDb computer program would not allow me to enter that date since 1955 was the official date. This is no big deal, but something to keep in mind if the reader is doing some research, that the actual dates of these two episodes is probably 1954. Hope this is of help to those interested.
