A piece of werewolf history, unfortunately lost.
6 April 2005 | by (Bromsgrove, England) – See all my reviews

The first werewolf movie ever filmed is a long-lost silent film from 1913, 18 minutes in length, unfortunately destroyed by a fire in 1924. It was the only film which examines the old Indian legends of people turned into wolves through magic power for purposes of vengeance, who can assume human form at will.

A Navajo woman named Kee-On-Ee believes she has been abandoned by her husband, who has actually been killed, and so she becomes a witch. Her daughter, Watuma, is taught to hate all white men and seeks vengeance by attacking the invading whites in wolf form, until she encounters a friar and his cross. She returns from death 100 years later to kill the sweetheart of the reincarnation of the man who shot her lover. A real wolf was used in the transformation sequence, involving simple camera dissolves.

Directed by Henry MacRae, who directed over a hundred films prior to 1930, mostly exotic adventure shorts, and produced early classics such as the Flash Gordon series.
