The weekly run began last Saturday with the first of nine Lone Wolf movies that star Warren William as The Lone Wolf, The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt.
There's a very good chance you know Warren William is a personal favorite. He's surely mentioned more here than he is on most other classic movie related websites, but just imagine how much more I'd talk about his work if I didn't also run Warren-William.com!
It's too late to catch The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt, that aired last week, but the third Warren William entry, The Lone Wolf Meets a Lady, airs this Saturday, November 26 at 10:30 am EST. For some reason TCM is going out of order with these, but the second movie in the William series, The Lone Wolf Strikes, airs the following Saturday in the same time slot.
TCM takes some time off during the two consecutive holiday weekends in December, but the Lone Wolf is back in January after that.
Prior to this run I had only written about The Lone Wolf Spy Hunt on Warren-William.com. Now I'm going to try and cover them all, each before TCM airs them so interested viewers have somewhere else to go after they watch each movie.
TCM can air them any way they want, but I'm writing about them in order, so this week I've added two brand new articles to the site. You can read about The Lone Wolf Strikes here and The Lone Wolf Meets a Lady here.
As always, spoilers are avoided.
Don't worry if you missed Spy Hunt as each movie stands alone with only the growing camaraderie of the characters really carrying over from movie to movie.
There's a non-Lone Wolf Warren William pre-code birthday extravaganza airing during the daytime December 2 and I have two additional articles to add to Warren-William.com before that as well as a schedule reminder probably both here and there. After I cover those couple of early 30's films (Beauty and the Boss and The Dark Horse for those interested) I'll return to The Lone Wolf series.
If you're not a Warren William fan I apologize for the intrusion, but if you are, and you didn't know about my tribute site, you can subscribe to Warren-William.com here.
There aren't nearly as many updates on Warren-William.com as there are on Immortal Ephemera--usually about one per month--but this is a heavy posting time there because of The Lone Wolf run on TCM and William's upcoming birthday.
And don't worry, I have two non-Warren William movie articles planned for right here on Immortal Ephemera, hopefully within the next 5-7 days.
One will definitely be a William Powell movie in anticipation of his being TCM's Star of the Month in December, the other may be a Spencer Tracy movie I recently rewatched while reading the new biography about him.
Talk to you soon, enjoy the movies!
