Horror Scenes I Love: Larry Talbot Discovers His Fate in The Wolf Man


Today’s horror scene that I love comes from 1941’s The Wolf Man.

In this scene, poor, unfortunate Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney, Jr) visits a gypsy camp and learns that sad truth of his fate from Maleva (Maria Ouspenskaya).  I love this scene not only for the iconic dialogue but also for George Waggner’s atmospheric direction and Maria Ouspenskaya’s performance.  Even Lon Chaney, Jr. gives it his all in this scene.  Larry Talbot may have been a dumb lug but he was our dumb lug!
