The Lone Wolf character dates back to 1914, when author Louis Joseph Vance invented him for a series of books. Warren Williams starred in a total of nine Lone Wolf films.
The Lone Wolf (Warren William) is determined to remain reformed for the sake of his daughter Patricia (Virginia Weidler), but a gang of foreign spies abducts Lanyard and force him to steal the blueprints for a secret anti-aircraft gun. Ever the ladies' man, Lanyard has two lovelies to contend with here: pretty heiress Val Carson (Ida Lupino) and seductive spy Karen (Rita Hayworth)
