The Wolf Man

Synopsis: 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. Transformed by the full moon, Larry heads for the forest and a fateful meeting with both Sir John and Gwen Conliffe.

Just like that.

What kind of

cane would you like?

We have daywear

or eveningwear.

It doesn't matter.

There's this one, it's very smart.

Solid-gold top.

No, I don't think

that'll do.

Well, how about the little dog?

That would suit you.

No, thanks.

Well, here's one.

Would make a good putter.

Yes, it would.

That's funny.

Another dog.

No, that's a wolf.

A wolf?


A wolf and a star.

What does that mean?

I thought you said

you were psychic.

I am, but this is only wood and

silver, and it hasn't blue eyes.

Well then, that stick is

priced at three pounds.

Three pounds? 15 dollars

for an old stick?

Well, that's a

very rare piece.

It shows the wolf and the pentagram,

the sign of the werewolf.


What's that?

That's a human being who, at certain

times of the year, changes into a wolf.

You mean, runs around

on all fours

and bites and snaps

and bays at the moon?

Even worse

than that, sometimes.

What big eyes

you have, Grandma.

Little Red Riding Hood

was a werewolf story.

Of course, there have been many others.

There's an old 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"

Yes, but what's this

pentagram business?

Every werewolf is

marked with that,

and sees it in the palm

of his next victim's hand.

Look, lady, if you're trying

to scare me out of here,

you're not

getting very far.

I'll take the cane.

Please tell me, have you

ever seen me before?

Of course. How do you suppose

I knew about the earrings?

I can't remember ever...

Tell you what we'll do.

We'll take a little walk tonight

and we'll talk it over.


See you at 8:


Gypsies, huh?

Yes, they're


They pass through

here every autumn.
