She-Wolf of London (1946)

She-Wolf of London (1946), directed by Jean Yarbrough.

An heiress suffering blackouts and sleepwalking believes she has inherited the family werewolf curse and is responsible for some nearby murders. Just in time to ruin her upcoming wedding.

At only 61m long this still drags. Humorless and with very little tension. They want to keep us guessing until the last moment as to whether there really is a creature:


There isn't. No such thing.

Starring June Lockhart, age 21. In the 1950s she became famous for Lassie and in the 1960s for Lost in Space.

Available on Blu-ray with Werewolf of London (1935) on the same disc. This one has a more dramatic score but is again an American picture set in London for no good reason. Maybe werewolves are by their nature Old World?
