“The Wolf Man” (1941)

Here’s what looks like a publicity still for “The Wolf Man” (1941); this is part of my efforts to monster up the blogosphere a bit this Halloween.

For some reason, it seems weird to me that the classic Universal monster movies came out before America entered World War II.  They really ARE old movies.

I had a children’s book about the making of the Universal classics when I was a kid.  I remember reading how Lon Chaney, Jr.’s makeup had to be applied — each hair was apparently placed there strand by strand.  And audiences back then were quite thrilled with the result.
