The Lone Wolf's car, aka Lulubelle, is a pre-war American Bantam, fewer than 7000 of which were produced from 1938 to 1941 by the American Bantam Car Company, which was resurrected from the ashes of the American Austin Car Company of Butler PA. See more »
The Notorious Lone Wolf has returned from the war. Indeed cinematically the last couple of Warren William Lone Wolf features had to do with wartime plots. Now Michael Lanyard has returned and he's now being played by Gerald Mohr.
In fact he's looking for a nice romantic evening with Janis Carter. But trusty valet Jameson first brings in Inspector William Davidson of the NYPD who always suspects The Lone Wolf when a big caper happens and the Shalimar diamond has been stolen from a visiting Indian potentate. In real life these guys would shortly be giving up their thrones so maybe the maharajah was in the USA looking for new digs.
The Carter's sister Adelle Roberts shows up asking Mohr for some help with her love life as Mark Roberts has been spending time with an exotic dancer. Wouldn't you know it, the stolen jewel and the dancer are connected and when the dancer gets shot very dead, the police as always suspect The Lone Wolf. So Mohr as per the usual Lone Wolf plots has to recover the diamond to prove his innocence.
Mohr is a rougher Lanyard as opposed to the dapper Warren William. Eric Blore is back as Jameson and a couple of times these two almost devolve into an Abbott&Costello routine. The slapstick was a bit out of place, you wouldn't have seen Warren William doing that.
Still The Notorious Lone Wolf is not a bad film, just a different loner.
