The Wolfman PosterTITLE: The Wolf Man

DIRECTOR: George Waggner

CAST: Lon Chaney Jr, Claude Rains, Bela Lugosi, Ralph Bellamy and Warren William

PLOT: Larry Talbot, a man who has spent many years in America, returns to his native Wales and is attacked by a werewolf becoming a lycanthrope himself

MORAL OF THE STORY: “Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright.”

FUN FACT: The silver top of Larry’s wolf-head cane was made of vulcanized rubber so none of the actors or stunt doubles would get injured if they were accidentally hit by it.
