My man Creighton!

The Wolf Man is the movie that got me interested in horror movies. I watched it for the first time at age 6, and look where it's led me!

Poor Lon Jr. Overshadowed by his dad, he was never (imo) given his due for his acting ability. I could hold forth for hours on the nuances of his performances as Lawrence Talbot, of the wonderful tension between his massive, hulking physique and his sensitive, wounded eyes, but I'll refrain in the interest of brevity.

Now everybody's doin' the Werewolves of London.
