Larry Talbot (Chaney Jr.) kills a wolf with his silver-headed walking stick. However, the beast bits him during the fight. It turns out that it was no ordinary wolf, but the werewolf son of a gypsy woman.
Talbot learns that a wound from a werewolf is nothing less then an eternal curse. From now on, whenever the moon is full, he is doomed to transform into the Wolf Man.
A handsomely told tale with an affecting performance from Lon Chaney, Jr., The Wolf Man remains one of the classics of the Universal horror stable.
