Fellow coast-to-coast Svengoolie SvenPals will be jumping for joy for his upcoming showcase of a classic 1935 Universal Studios monster entry.
“Svengoolie” presents: “Werewolf of London” (1935)
Theatrical trailer for “Werewolf of London” (1935). Note: This was altered for the later Realart re-issue of the Universal monster classic.
The legendary Chicago/Berwyn-based horror film host will showcase “Werewolf of London” (1935), this Sat., June 2 at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central on Me-TV.
“Werewolf of London” (1935) was directed by Stuart Walker. That same year, Walker also directed a musical comedy for Universal, titled “Manhattan Moon” (1935, with Ricardo Cortez, Dorothy Page and Regis Toomey). Walker also served in uncredited roles as producer and associate producer for the later “Bulldog Drummond” series of mystery films at rival studio Paramount Pictures from 1937–39, according to IMDB.
Walker’s 1935 Universal horror entry served as the precursor to the studio’s later series of “Wolf Man”/werewolf-themed monster franchise films; including George Waggoner’s “The Wolf Man” (1941, with Lon Chaney Jr., Bela Lugosi, Claude Rains, Ralph Bellamy, Evelyn Ankers, Warren William and Patric Knowles).
This will mark Sven’s sixth showcase of “Werewolf of London” (1935) on Me-TV. He previously showcased the film in Oct. 2012, Feb. 2013, Sept. 2014, Jan. 2016 and March 2017.
