The Wolf Man

In this monster classic Lon Chaney Jr. embodies Larry Talbot, who returns to Wales when his brother dies and reconciles with his father (Claude Rains). While there, he visits an antique shop and, hoping to impress the attractive shopkeeper Gwen (Evelyn Ankers), buys a silver walking cane and succeeds. That same night he kills a wolf with it, only to later learn that he actually killed a man (Bela Lugosi). Tortured by his action, a gypsy (Maria Ouspenskaya) explains that it was her son, a werewolf, that he killed, and that Larry is now one himself.
