Below are some of the images I had intended to include in the essay “Strange Botany in Werewolf of London.”
More frame enlargements from the film can be found in “Old Times in Werewolf of London.”
Werewolf of London (Stuart Walker, 1935). Glendon and Yogami, who
have just met, stand unusually close together.
Glendon and his wife, Lisa, share an awkward and stiff embrace.
The owl-like appearance of the character Hawkins…
… is reinforced by dialogue in the film.
The v-shaped scar on Glendon’s arm
The Madagascar Carnalia …
… eats a frog.
Frame enlargement of Mother Gin Sling (named Mother God Damn in
John Colton’s play) from The Shanghai Gesture (Josef von Sternberg, 1941)
Head of Medusa at the Uffizi
