She-Wolf of London [The She-Wolf of London]

Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1946. Post-production Continuity and dialogue script for the 1946 film.

Phyllis Allenby (Lockhart) has an ancient curse on her family, cast by a pack of wolves. After a series of local murders, she is convinced she and her werewolf curse are to blame, for she finds her belongings muddied, torn, and streaked with blood almost every morning. A greedy aunt eventually confesses to framing Phyllis (in attempt to retain the Allenby's family fortune), and suddenly dies by falling down a flight of stairs and onto a knife. With all the right elements of atmosphere, eerie stringed instrumentation as the score, and impeccable effects, the film was not well received. Stands unique in the werewolf pantheon, with a woman as the accursed, and no werewolf actually seen.
