While killing what he thought was a wolf, Larry Talbot
was bitten by a werewolf. Cursed with lycanthropy, Talbot is forced to prowl the countryside in the form of a two-legged wolf. He is later bludgeoned to death by his father, who unknowingly uses the silver-tipped head of his walking stick to dispatch the beast... only to watch in horror as the monster
is revealed in death to be his son.
