Corrected entry: The film is set in 1891 and depicts a scene where the wolfman attacks a bus full of passengers, yet the earliest motorised buses were not introduced to London until 1902.
Dr. Hoenneger: Now, we are all aware that Mr. Talbot has suffered quite traumatic personal experiences. He witnessed his mother's self mutilations. His young mind, unable to accept it, created a fantastical truth, that his father is to blame. That his father is literally a monster. [Turns to Lawrence.] But, your father is not a werewolf. You were not bitten by a werewolf. You will not become a werewolf, any more than I will sprout wings and fly out of that window.
Trivia: Maybe more coincidence than trivia, but towards the end of the film, Gwen shoots and kills the Wolfman/Lawrence Talbot - in effect, beauty kills the beast. In Universal Studios' other major classic monster movie, King Kong, the beauty kills the big ape, albeit indirectly.
