The Wolf Man (1941)

I watched the 1941 Universal Pictures movie The Wolf Man starring Lon Chaney Jr. on Svengoolie. It was his first appearance as, Larry Talbot, The Wolf Man, but he would reprise his role in four sequels. He is also the only actor to play all four of the classic monsters; Frankenstein, Mummy, Wolf Man and Dracula. This was the second Universal werewolf film, the first being the 1935 Werewolf of London. Make-up was by Jack P. Pierce and for

this movie took 4-6 hours and another hour to remove. The hair was from a yak and glued in layers to his face. Bela Lugosi, Evelyn Ankers and Claude Rains were also in the movie.

Wolf’s-bane and the famous poem are legendary from this movie. I will give this classic film 3.75 out of 5 stars. For more information on the movie see Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
