The Lone Wolf In London (1947)

Starring Gerald Mohr, Nancy Saunders, Eric Blore, Evelyn Ankers, Richard Fraser
Directed by Leslie Goodwins
(actor & director credits courtesy

The Lone Wolf travels to London to view an exclusive pair of gems he plans to include in a book he's writing, but their disappearance after his arrival prompts Scotland Yard to follow him closely.

Another fun Lone Wolf adventure well constructed around Gerald Mohr's talented voice and Eric Blore's comic timing, the film's a very enjoyable lark, but there's not much thought expended in the screenplay towards using the British flavor of the setting to add color to the film.  I still enjoyed the production, and after seeing two of his Lone Wolf outings now, it's a shame that Mohr's run on the series didn't last longer.
