Warren William is The Lone Wolf for the third time in The Lone Wolf Meets a Lady. Includes a brief biography of co-star Jean Muir. Plus plenty of Eric Blore wit.
Warren William has his second go as Michael Lanyard in The Lone Wolf Strikes (1940) an entry highlighted by his skills as both aquarist and master impersonator. Eric Blore and Fred Kelsey join the cast.
