Overview

The lady in question in this delightful whodunit is Joan Bradley (Jean Muir), a former secretary who is about to marry her employer's son, Bob Pennison (Warren Hull). Mrs. Pennison (Georgia Caine) graciously lends her future daughter-in-law a priceless necklace, but when Joan returns to her apartment, she is met by what at first appears to be the ghost of her late husband, Rennick (Roger Pryor). He is no ghost -- but very much alive, in fact. Rennick grabs the necklace, shoves poor Joan away, and he's promptly shot and killed by...well, that is indeed the question. Brought into the case by accident (literally), former jewel thief-turned-master sleuth Michael Lanyard (Warren William) must once again cross swords not only with a dangerous criminal but with the ubiquitous foe, Inspector Crane (Thurston Hall). The Lone Wolf Meets a Lady was the third entry in the Lone Wolf series.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
A rather sophisticated series of whodunits that deserves renewed recognition, the Lone Wolf comedy thrillers are lighthearted and fun with The Lone Wolf Meets a Lady as one of the best in the series. Warren William has a wonderful way with a line and is backed splendidly by an unusually game supporting cast headed by that most cunning of gentlemen's gentleman, Eric Blore. Like so many other unfairly forgotten B-movies, this potboiler from Columbia Pictures remains fresher and more entertaining than many a weighty so-called "classic."
