The Movie: Curse of the Werewolf (1961)
What Is It?: There’s only about five minutes of solid werewolf time in Hammer’s only werewolf movie, but this is one of the studio’s best because of its epic, time-traversing structure, its look at how the haves are responsible for the crimes of the have-nots, and its overall air of creepy decadence and tragedy.
Why Today?: On this day in 1938, Yvonne Romain, who plays the werewolf’s mum, is born.
