Werewolf Origin was inspired by the 1941 movie, “The Wolf Man.” The film starred Lon Chaney, Jr. who is bitten by a werewolf in his attempt to save a girl. The girl dies, but he did kill the monster, who was Bela, a gypsy fortuneteller. Unfortunately for Lon, he becomes a werewolf, and so begins the genre. But how did Bela become the first werewolf?
