The Original Less Hairy Wolfman

The well-known "Wolf Man" makeup used on Lon Chaney Jr. for The Wolf Man (1941) was actually created by Universal Pictures makeup designer Jack P. Pierce for Henry Hull in Werewolf of London (1935). After makeup tests, Hull declined to wear the makeup, citing his dislike of the time-consuming makeup application. A less hairy version was then devised by Pierce, and it is this version that is seen in the film. A still photograph of the original test makeup survives, however, and has been published.

The werewolf howl used in this film is a combination of Henry Hull's own voice and a recording of an actual timber-wolf. The result is generally thought to have a far more realistic result than in any subsequent werewolf films, including 1941's "The Wolf-Man."
