Corrected entry: Lawrence is on the train and drops his wallet. The shot is of him in an empty compartment. Next shot is of a man picking up and returning the wallet.he just magically appeared out of no where.


Correction: The scene is a "dream" of sorts. When he awakens, the wallet is in the same spot on the ground along with the newspaper, which he folds in the "dream".

Corrected entry: During the beginning of the movie, shortly after Lawrence returns home, Anthony Hopkins is blowing off the "candles", I wonder what type of "lamp" that is. The lights should not fade off. You can obviously compare the effects when he blows off the candle in the next moment.

Correction: If they are oil lamps, which they are, the wick, which is soaked with oil, will continue to glow for a few moments after the flame is blown out. That's why they fade out like that.


Corrected entry: After Larry's rampage through London he hides in Gwen's shop. Gwen returns and using a wall switch turns on the electric lights! (Year=1891?).


Correction: She was actually turning up the gas for the lamps.


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.

Correction: The bus seen in the film is steam powered, which were in use since the 1830's.


Factual error: When Talbot is first in Gwen Conliffe's shop in London, there is a vase of flowers containing Stargazer lilies. The Stargazer lily wasn't created until 1978 by Leslie Woodriff.

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.

More quotes from The Wolfman

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.

Suggested correction: King Kong was produced by RKO, not Universal.

I stand corrected. There's been some back and forth as to who owned the franchise at a point. So, coincidentally perhaps, beauty still plays a role in the creature's demise. :).

But why exactly? He didn't need it if he was simply going to follow his dad into the crypt.
