More Movie Taglines:
- "His hideous howl a dirge of death!"
- "Night monster with the blood lust of a savage beast!"
- Maleva: Whoever is bitten by a werewolf and lives becomes a werewolf himself. Larry Talbot: Ah, don't hand me that. You're just wasting your time. Maleva: The wolf bit you, didn't he? Larry Talbot: Yeah. Yeah he did!
Jenny Williams: Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright. Larry Talbot: [after hearing it twice already] You know that one too ah?
Sir John Talbot: All astronomers are amateurs. When it comes to the heavens, there's only one professional.
Maleva: The way you walked was thorny, through no fault of your own, but as the rain enters the soil, the river enters the sea, so tears run to a predestined end. Your suffering is over, Bela my son. Now you will find peace.
Doctor Lloyd: I believe a man lost in the mazes of his own mind may imagine that he's anything.
- Larry Talbot's brother's name was John.
In the first version of the script, Larry was not the prodigal son of Sir John Talbot, nor related to him in any way. He was an American engineer who comes to fix Sir John's telescope, and ends up getting trapped in the werewolf curse.
Lon Chaney Jr.'s make-up took six hours to apply, and three hours to get off.
Larry had been away 18 years working on Mt. Wilson Observatory in California.
The first transformation takes place with Talbot in an undershirt (although he is fully dressed in a dark shirt once on the prowl). Only the feet transform on screen in six lapse dissolves. In the second transformation there are eleven shots - again of feet only. The third transformation features 17 face shots in a continuous dissolve.
