"The Wolfman", 1941, from Universal Pictures. I've seen this one in its entirety at least 50 times and seen it referenced for memorabilia at least 500 times. A good cast of actors who lasted for decades. The only tragedy was Lon Chaney Jr whose problems with alcohol ruined his career. But you can watch this 110 minute long film and enjoy it even though it's now 75 years old. The only question I have is why did Bela Lugosi's wolfman be an actual wolf running on all fours and Chaney's wolfman be an upright creature who used his forepaws as arms.

Classic for a reason! Sure, the special effects look rather cheesy nowadays, but the story, the acting, and the atmospheric sets are still good...not to mention that this movie set the standard for all werewolf movies to come, and invented half the "folklore" that we associate with werewolves today--such as death by silver, an abhorrence of wolfsbane, and that lovely poem: "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." Worth seeing, if nothing else, in comparison to 2010's remake, "The Wolfman," which won an Oscar for special effects during the first major transformation sequence.
