A travelling circus in 19th century France adopts and showcases a feral "wolf boy", who grows into adulthood only to kill the one-man band. He runs off to Paris, where he develops a jealous, overprotective crush on a prostitute, leading him to attack her client, incurring a pursuit by a determined police surgeon.

A Tyburn Tale of Terror
Did You Know?
Although "wolf boy" (as a type of circus performed) is said, the dialogue explicitly avoids certain relevant words with all the synonyms, including "werewolf" (which the protagonist is), "prostitute" (which his romantic interest is) or "brothel" (which is one of the main sets). Instead, when characters are going to utter any of these words, they suddenly change their minds, never pronouncing it out loud but with a implicit understanding that the other person knows what they were going to say - and, in one case, Peter Cushing
's character beats around the bush to not say "brothel", finally settling for "entertainment house". See more
