Upon the death of his brother, Larry Talbot returns from America to his ancestral home in Wales. He visits a gypsy camp with village girl Jenny Williams, who is attacked by Bela, a gypsy who has turned into a werewolf. Larry kills the werewolf but is bitten during the fight. Bela’s mother tells him that this will cause him to become a werewolf at each full moon. Larry confesses his plight to his unbelieving father, Sir John, who then joins the villagers in a hunt for the wolf. Larry, transformed by the full moon, heads for the forest and a fateful meeting with both Sir John and Gwen.

Film Review

"The Wolf Man", while signaling the end of the classic Universal horrors, is in and of itself their greatest triumph.Much of the Werewolf lore taken as fact by the general public in fact was the invention of the screenwriter, the very talented Curt Siodmak, and has very little, if any, basis in true folklore. Not bad for an immigrant from Nazi Germany, Mr. Siodmak had said that much of the "horror" in the film was derived from the horrors he witnessed in his homeland before emigrating to the USA.Contrary to other reviews, the very talented Lon Chaney Jr. gives a performance as the cursed Larry Talbot equal to or superior to his role of Lenny in "Of Mice and Men". The scenes between he and Claude Rains, portraying his father, Sir John Talbot, are given real emotional heft by the two actors, even though I've never known a father and son who discuss their being "stiff-necked and undemonstrative types" who vow never to have any more such reserv…

The Wolf Man is an atmospheric, well-made, and well-acted movie. It's famous doggerel – "Even a man who is pure in heart", etc, has sort of passed into our culture, and it sustains its aura of tragedy right to the end, proving immensely superior to its recent ham-fisted remake.The film, of course, concerns Lawrence Talbot's (Lon Chaney Jr) return to his ancient family home of Llanwelly, Wales, which looks a lot like Transylvania here. After many years in America. Larry has reconciled with his father Sir John (an excellent Claude Raines), and is to run the Talbot Estate. It isn't long before he has spied (literally through the use of a telescope) the lovely Gwen (Evelyn Ankers), daughter of a local antique shop owner. And of course, there is the sinister party of Gypsies that lurk in the woods.It isn't long before Larry meets Bela (unsuprisingly Bela Lugosi!) who sees the sign of the Pentagram on a soon to be victim when he reads her fortune. Poor Bela, yo…

|Credit. IMDb|A practical man returns to his homeland, is attacked by a creature of folklore, and infected with a horrific disease his disciplined mind tells him can not possibly exist.After watching the Remake a few short weeks ago, I couldn't help but think of this classic right here. There is just no comparison to how great this movie really is. What really makes The Wolfman is the incredible atmosphere. Dated as it may seem, the foggy atmosphere never fails to send chills down my body, and Lon Chaney's electrifying performance still holds up today. What amazed me a lot by revisiting this film, is how the Chaney's transformation into a Wearwolf, still had the same effect on me. It still holds up wonderfully. Lon Chaney and Claude Rain's Father & Son scenes as the Talbot's often highlight this movie. I can honestly say, you will rarely see such a tragic ending that impacts you like this one does.Performances. Lon Chaney Jr. gives a classical performance…
