Trivia

Pre-release publicity material lists Reginald Barlow cast as "Dr. Phillips", scripted as a specialist whom "Dr. Glendon" privately consults after being afflicted with "lycanthrophobia"; this detail, however, was bypassed in the finished production (if indeed it was ever filmed at all), most likely because it would be totally against the established "solitary" character of "Glendon" to do so. At any rate, Barlow was "re-assigned" the uncredited role of the caretaker Timothy. See more »

Silly Werewolf Movie
20 November 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The British botanist Wilfred Glendon (Henry Hull) goes in an expedition to Tibet to search the rare phosphorescent wolf-flower that is located in a cursed place. While collecting the flower, Glendon is bitten by a strange creature. He returns to London and makes research with the flower. During an exposition, the mysterious Dr. Yogami (Warner Oland) tells him that there are two werewolves in London and the flower is an antidote to the lycanthropy that avoids the transformation into werewolf. Further the creature would seek out his love to kill.

Glendon discovers that he has contracted the disease and when he seeks his flowers in the full moon, he finds that someone has stolen them from his laboratory. Now Glendon wants to protect his beloved wife Lisa (Valerie Hobson) from himself, but he begins a murder wave in London.

"Werewolf of London" is a silly and moralist werewolf movie by Universal. The dramatic main plot of a scientist that searches a rare flower and contracts lycanthropy is interesting, but the subplots ruin the movie. The beloved wife of Glendon "innocently" hanging around with her ex-boyfriend Paul Ames, ending hand-in-hand in the last scene is awful. The chief of the Scotland Yard telling that he would prepare a fake report is unnecessary and absurd. The annoying and unfunny Aunt Ettie Coombes is just an inconvenient character. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "O Lobisomem de Londres" ("The Werewolf of London")
