Spicy Reading
3 March 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The Lone Wolf series for Columbia finally wrapped with The Lone Wolf And His Lady. Things were getting a bit thin for the series and in this film Ron Randell became the final actor to essay the character of Michael Lanyard.

What really hurt this series was that Eric Blore had made his farewell appearance in the previous Lone Wolf entry. Alan Mowbray as Jamison the Butler with Randell as Lanyard just didn't have the chemistry. Blore when he played Jamison with that elfin wit and charm was making more of a fool of law enforcement than his employer was at times and that's saying something.

The plot has the notorious master criminal once again accused of stealing a diamond. He's at the exhibit because Douglass Dumbrille's newspaper is paying him for his memoirs and he's there with reporter June Vincent covering the opening. When the jewel is stolen as always the cops in the person of William Frawley accuses him.

I kind of liked the idea of The Lone Wolf writing memoirs for syndication. What spicy reading they'll make.

A lot spicier than the film however.
