Reformed thief turned private detective Michael Lanyard was known to friend and foe alike as “The Lone Wolf.” The debonair rogue thrilled readers from his first appearance in 1914, and he was a mainstay on the big screen from the silent film era through the 1940s. He made his first radio appearance not in his own series but in an episode of “radio’s outstanding theatre of thrills” – Suspense. Warren William recreated his big screen role as Lanyard, and he was joined by Eric Blore in his cinematic role of Lanyard’s valet Jamison. The duo stars in “Murder Goes for a Swim,” originally aired on CBS on July 20, 1943.
