The Wolfman

Stupidity: When Lawrence begins turning into a werewolf in front of Dr. Hoenneger, his fellow doctors, Inspector Aberline and the guard, everybody just sits in their seats and watches the transformation instead of running for the door.

Other mistake: Gwen regrets getting Lawrence involved, saying that if she had never sent him that letter, he would still be in New York. She sent Lawrence a letter when Ben went missing in the theatrical version but, in the extended cut she went to tell him in person instead. Yet the "letter" line is retained in both versions even though it doesn't make sense in the latter.

Gwen Conliffe: It is said, there is no sin in killing a beast, only in killing a man. But where does one begin and the other end?

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. :).
