Louis Hayward is Cool!
17 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

As mentioned in another interview, the new Michael Lanyard of the Lone Wolf TV series is Louis Hayward. Hayward was perfect as the Lone Wolf--soft spoken, slight smile on his face, and tough boxer who knocks out the bad guys when needed. The Lone Wolf always seemed to have enough money to take on juicy cases that mostly involved old friends who were wronged or were in desperate trouble of some kind. He was always jet-setting around and drove nice cars, mostly convertibles. He stays in nice hotels and has many lady friends who would be glad to noose him and settle him down. A cool thing is when he needs to see someone and can't get to them, he leaves a small coin with a wolf insignia on it and the person knows it's only from Michael Lanyard, the Lone Wolf. They always know how to get a hold of him. Louis Hayward is the slightly swaggering, mannish, soft-spoken hero of the detective TV 50's. He's always cool and knows what to say. Also mentioned the show now plays on American Life TV after It's a Great Life, another fun 50's series. I record the shows and play them back to back some weekend afternoons for fun detective time where the good guy always wins. If you can't stay up that late program the show in and replay it when you can. I think you'll like the ultra cool artsy image it conveys. Cool lines, cool cars, cool characters. I only wish that the show was on DVD. I'd buy it in a minute. If you like good guys to win in the end, you'll like The Lone Wolf!
