Yes, it’s been awhile, but Warren-William.com is alive and well and I can assure you that a detailed review of The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt (1939) is on the way as I’ve put myself down to post that entry as part of the Classic Movie Blog Association’s (CMBA) Classic Movies of 1939 Blogathon on May 17.
CMBA is an association of classic film blogs that Warren-William.com belongs to and who were kind enough to award Warren-William.com their CiMBA Award for Best Classic Movie Discussion in 2010. The Classic Movies of 1939 Blogathon is being hosted by ClassicBecky and Page of My Love of Old Hollywood and currently boasts 36 bloggers who will provide looks at 41 different films from that magical year of 1939.
1939 wasn’t exactly a banner year for Warren William’s filmography and Warren-William.com would have much preferred a Classic Movies of 1932 Blogathon, but this site is just thankful that A) 1939 provided at least one important release for WW, and B) That the year selected wasn’t post-1948!
I’m very much looking forward to digging into The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt as it’s a Warren William title that I really haven’t looked at beyond the contents of the film itself as of yet. With co-stars Ida Lupino and Rita Hayworth both on the verge of breaking out as major stars it should be an interesting title to look into well beyond Warren William’s part. For now I’ll leave you with a press pic showing both WW and Ida and say see you back in this space, May 17 …
Great to have a new entry on the WW site, Cliff, though of course we have been able to find you elsewhere on the ‘Net(Immortal Ephemera) since the EMPLOYEES ENTRANCE essay here. While THE LONE WOLF SPY HUNT is hardly the zenith of either the WW or the 1939 filmography, it IS a very enjoyable B film that, by its excellence on that level, really helps bring into relief what a terrific year for films that was, and what a wonderful asset to films WW still was.
Thanks, Jeffers, I’m hoping to do royal justice to Spy Hunt and make up recent lack of quantity here with some superior quality. Maybe Ida won’t bother me so much after I watch it again this time!
PS: Thanks for following on Immortal Ephemera, that’s definitely where most of my efforts have been as of late.

Looking forward to the blog. I am unreserved in my affection for “The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt” – probably due to my unreserved affection for WW.
I’m glad to see you back and reviewing a film I’ve not had the pleasure of seeing Cliff!
See ya soon my friend,
Cliff, I’m looking forward to your review of THE LONE WOLF SPY HUNT. I always thought it was a model “B” mystery with a zippy pace, the right amount of humor, and a fine cast.
