Louis Hayward is The Lone Wolf - 1954-1955

The Lone Wolf is a character created by novelist Louis Joseph Vance (1879–1933). His eight stories about a gentleman jewel thief who was always meeting and helping ladies in distress were published from 1914 until his death in 1933. They inspired not only Lone Wolf movies and television shows like this one, but also were the inspiration for the gentleman criminal-turned-detective The Saint.

In 1954 Gross-Krasne Productions, an independent television show producer, filmed 39 thirty minute episodes for television, and I am pleased to be able to show you all thirty nine episodes. They changed The Lone Wolf character from a criminal jewel thief to a wealthy man-about-town that always stumbles upon a mystery that only he can solve. You will see many of the movie and television stars of that era playing parts in these detective thrillers, like Barbara Billingsley, Ernest Borgnine, Harry Morgan, Beverly Garland, DeForest Kelly, John Doucette, Jerry Paris, Denver Pyle, Aaron Spellling, Irene Hervey and more.
