From the Back Cover

Werewolf of London: Despite warnings that the region is dangerous, Botanist Wilfred Glendon (Henry Hull) travels to Tibet in search of the Marifasa Lupina, a rare flower that blooms only in moonlight. Back in London, Glendon is visited by the enigmatic Dr. Yogami (Warner Oland), who tells him that a current rash of murders is the work of two werewolves from harming the ones they love. Glendon scoffs at Yogami's stories, until the next full moon!

She-Wolf of London: The citizens in turn-of-the-century London are terrified and Scotland Yard is baffled by a mysterious string of bloody killings in the city's most infamous park. In a nearby estate Phyllis Allenby (June Lockhart) fears that the "Allenby Curse" that led to the death of her parents has now turned her into a "she-wolf." Haunted by dreams of mayhem and worried she's going insane, Phyllis breaks off her engagement with her fiancée (Don Porter). Determined to prove that the woman he loves couldn't be a murderess, he sets out to unmask the real killer.

5.0 out of 5 stars WEREWOLF OF LONDON.... November 5, 2002
I like this more than the 1941 Chaney classic. Although that one has it's merits like better transformation scenes, "Werewolf of London" has a charm not found in "The Wolf Man". Perhaps it's because it was the first film to tackle a werewolf story and attempt to explain the werewolf mystique in literate terms. It's a fun film regardless. Henry Hull is a botanist bitten by a strange creature while on expedition in Tibet. Back in London, he is warned by a strange fellow scientist that he's doomed. A moonflower is the key to each man's problems and Hull is cultivating it in his laboratory. The other scientist (Warner Oland of Charlie Chan fame) desperately wants it as he is the creature who bit Hull in Tibet. He suffers the curse of the werewolf and now Hull will suffer too. The moonflower is the antidote/cure. Soon Hull is becoming a wolf-man and stalking London under the full moon. Hull's wife (Valerie Hobson) is perplexed by his personality changes and seeks solace with an old boyfriend. But she, too, will be threatened as the werewolf always seeks to kill the thing it loves best. Spring Byington is wonderful as dizzy socialite "Miss Ettie Coombes" a friend of Hobson's who sees the creature and believes it's the devil come to claim her for her "sins". Two boarding house crones also add vignettes when Hull tries to hide out from the moon. One, Ethel Griffies, was years later the bird specialist in the diner scene in Hitchcock's "The Birds"!!! The "Werewolf of London" shows it's age but is still a cornerstone in horror films and a delightful forerunner of things to come. This is a classic.

These two films could not be more different, and both are unmistakably distinct from the Universal werewolf films starring Lon Chaney, Jr., as the afflicted Larry Talbot, yet I think they both work marvelously. Many fans don't care for them, especially She-Wolf in London, but I find both films equally compelling. They differ significantly from the storyline running through Chaney's later Wolf Man films, but these two films have a great deal of their own to offer fans. Often overlooked and unduly dismissed by some reviewers and horror fans, these are two classic werewolf films.
Werewolf of London (1935) is actually Universal's first werewolf film - The Wolf Man with Lon Chaney, Jr., would come six years later. In Werewolf of London, botanist Wilfred Glendon (Henry Hull) sees his troubles begin in - of all places - Tibet, where he travels in search of the "Marifasa Lupina," a special flower that blooms only in moonlight. He gets his flower, but he also gets a nasty bite from a werewolf in the process. Back home in London, the flower takes on new meaning when a certain Dr. Yogami (Warner Oland) pays him a visit and expresses his own interest in the plant. Glendon doesn't believe Yogami's wild tales about werewolves - not until, that is, he turns into one that very night.
This isn't your ordinary werewolf. After his transformation, Glendon goes looking for a bloom of the flower (which, while not a cure for his affliction, would prevent him from killing those he loves the most) and then, before heading out into the streets, stops to put on his coat, hat, and scarf. The actual transformations, several of which are shown in the film, are rather impressive for such an early film. He's not overly hairy, but there is a definite look of evil intelligence in his eyes.

Despite Universal's claim on the DVD that this is a "Wolf Man Double Feature," neither of these films have any connection to the series of movies starring Lon Chaney Jr. as the werewolf-cursed Larry Talbot. The two films also have no connection to each other, but Universal apparently couldn't pass up the similarity of their titles to create this double-feature DVD. The films couldn't be farther apart. "WereWolf of London" was released in 1935, near the peak of Universal's first horror cycle that includes "Dracula," "Frankenstein," "The Mummy," "The Invisible Man," and "The Bride of Frankenstein" (also 1935). "She-Wolf of London" made it to theaters in 1946, just as Universal's horror films were about to die completely, and is more a traditional, bland murder mystery than horror film.
"WereWolf of London" is probably the least talked about original horror film from Universal's classic era. It has some excellent points, such as Jack Pierce's clever makeup, interesting visual effects, and some well-done sequences, but overall it's a sluggish film. Stage actor Henry Hull plays scientist Dr. Wilfred Glendon, who gets a werewolf bite while he is searching for a bizarre rare plant in Tibet (which looks strangely like Southern California). He starts transforming at night and tries to kill the thing he loves most, in this case his wife (played by seventeen-year-old British actress Valeria Hobson, who played Elizabeth in "The Bride of Frankenstein" that same year). The blooms of the rare plant are the only thing that can stop the transformation, but a mysterious Dr. Yogami (Warner Oland, most famous for playing Dr.
