The Wolf Man 1941 PG

70 mins USA Director. George Waggner

‘Even a man who is pure in heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfsbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.’ This ancient rhyme comes tragically true for Laurence Talbot (sadeyed Lon Chaney Jr, playing the part he was born to play), when he’s bitten by a werewolf. Claude Rains and Bela Lugosi co-star in the classic Universal horror.
