* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original idea for the movie was to keep things ''much'' more mysterious, implying that Larry's transformation was all in his head and ''never'' showing him clearly as the Wolf Man. But [[ExecutiveMeddling studio heads felt that you couldn't have a monster movie without a monster, so they made him into a visible werewolf.]] This might have been for the best, as the werewolf transformation scenes are amazing.

* WorkingTitle: ''Destiny'', which had been the preliminary title of a number of Universal films that decade (including ''Film/SonOfDracula'').
