Added DiffLines:

* {{Uberwald}} The setting is nominally Wales, but with gypsies, black forests, half-timbered cottages, and the old nobility over the castle, it's sort of the British branch of Uberwald.

LawrenceTalbot (Chaney) is about to have a really bad night. He's just returned to his family's home in Llanwelly, Wales, to reconcile with his father (Rains). While there, he meets and starts pursuing Gwen Conliffe (Ankers), a shopkeeper who sold him a walking stick adorned with a silver wolf's head (which she says represents a werewolf). In the course of rescuing Gwen's friend Jenny from an apparent wolf attack, Larry is bitten. He soon learns from a gypsy fortuneteller (Ouspenskaya) that the wolf in question was actually a werewolf, specifically her son Bela (Lugosi) roaming the countryside in the form of a wolf. Bela had been a werewolf for years, and has now passed on the curse to Larry.
