Where are all the top criminals?
9 April 2013 | by PaularocSee all my reviews

Louis Hayward plays the suave man about town, Michael Lanyard, also known for some unstated reason as The Lone Wolf. Federal agents ask Lanyard to help them in tracking down some top criminals who have recently pulled off a number of major heists. An agent telephones Lanyard telling him to meet him at the Blue Lantern and that he's leaving something for him under the phone box in the drugstore near the nightclub. Upon leaving the phone booth, the agent is shot to death. Boy, phone booths were dangerous places; this is the third detective story I've seen this past couple of weeks where someone is shot leaving a phone booth. What the agent left for Lanyard was a key good for one dance at the Blue Lantern. Lanyard follows this lead and it eventually leads him to the Blue Mountain Copper Lodge near Reno, Nevada. There's quite a dramatic and well done ending. At less that a half hour, there are to be expected plot gaps, but nonetheless an entertaining story due in large part to Louis Hayward who does well with the role of Lanyard.
