'''''She-Wolf of London''''' is a 1946 horror thriller from {{Universal}}.

People are attacked by a mysterious invidual at a local London park, to the bafflement of UsefulNotes/ScotlandYard. Meanwhile, rich heiress Phyllis Allenby (June Lockhart) who lives nearby is worried that it's all her doing, due to the legend of the "Curse of the Allenbys". According to the legend, the Allenby bloodline was cursed by partaking in "pagan rites" in the past and they are bound to transform into wolves....

Has nothing to do with [[Series/SheWolfOfLondon the 1990 television series with the same name]] -- and practically nothing to do with the rest of the Universal Horror Cycle, for that matter.

-->'''Barry''': To hold opinion with Pythagoras,\\
That souls of animals infuse themselves\\
Into the trunks of men: thy currish spirit\\
Govern’d a wolf, who, hang’d for human slaughter,\\
Even from the gallows did his fell soul fleet,\\
And whilst thou lay’st in thy unhallow’d dam,\\
Infus’d itself in thee; for thy desires\\
Are wolfish, bloody, starv’d, and ravenous.
-->'''Phyllis''': Please stop it Barry!
