She –Wolf of London (1946)

She –Wolf of London (1946)

She-Wolf of London (1946) was not really a werewolf movie at all, but rather a murder mystery. She-Wolf of London (1946) (UK title: Curse of the Allenbys) was produced by Universal Studios, directed by Jean Yarbrough and starred June Lockhart, who is remembered for her roles  as the mother in two hit TV series, Lassie and Lost in Space. The film stars Don Porter, who played Russell Lawrence in ABC comedy series Gidget, and Lloyd Corrigan, who was not only film and television actor, but a producer, screenwriter, and director as well.  Corrigan’s short musical film La Cucaracha (1934) won an Academy Award in 1935 for Best Short Subject (Comedy).

Filming completed in just three weeks on Christmas Eve 1945 and She-Wolf of London (1946) was released on May 17, 1946, as part of a double bill with The Cat Creeps (1946).  This low budget thriller was the last Universal horror film to be released during the studio’s golden age.
