The Wolf Man ★★★½ 1941

Fun, absorbing classic horror with Chaney as a man bitten by werewolf Lugosi. His dad thinks he's gone nuts, his screaming gal pal just doesn't understand, and plants on the Universal lot have no roots. Ouspenskaya's finest hour as the prophetic gypsy woman. Ow-ooo! Chilling and thrilling. 70m/B VHS, DVD . Lon Chaney Jr., Claude Rains, Maria Ouspenskaya, Ralph Bellamy, Bela Lugosi, Warren William, Patric Knowles, Evelyn Ankers, Forrester Harvey, Fay Helm; D: George Waggner; W: Curt Siodmak; C: Joseph Valentine; M: Charles Previn, Hans J. Salter, Frank Skinner.
