The Lone Wolf, the gentleman thief created by Louis Joseph Vance, made his talking-picture debut in Columbia's The Lone Wolf's Daughter (the film was essentially silent, save for an opening dialogue sequence). Bert Lytell, who'd essayed the title role so often during the silent era, again appears as Michael Lanyard, alias The Lone Wolf. Promising to reform his ways for the sake of his adopted daughter (Florence Allen), Lanyard is obliged to revert to his old tricks to prevent a jewel robbery. Scotland Yard is convinced that Lanyard has not reformed, but he proves otherwise when he turns the genuine miscreants over to the authorities. Unavailable in recent years for reappraisal, The Lone Wolf's Daughter was remade in 1939 as The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt, easily the best-ever entry in Columbia's long-running Lone Wolf series.
