Today's birthday of note.......
Lon Chaney Jr. Star of numerous classic Universal Pictures horror films of the 1940's. Some of my fondest memories were watching those wonderful movies when I was growing up. Chaney was most famous for his portrayal of the cursed and haunted Lawrence Talbot in the movie The Wolf Man. I thought that movie was the best thing in the world, I even remember the old gypsy woman's poem about the curse of the werewolf,
"Even a man who is pure at heart, and says his prayers at night, may become a wolf when the wolf bane blooms and the moon is full and bright......."
But of course, a great movie like this couldn't be left alone. Hollywood just HAD to mess with it, a new version of this classic will be out around Christmas.
