Happy 108th Birthday, Curt Siodmak!

WildClaw's Blood Radio would like to extend happy (what would have been) 108th birthday wishes to one of the best-known names in classic horror cinema, Curt Siodmak. While he was primarily known for authoring the screenplay to the beloved Universal monster film, The Wolf Man, he also wrote a host of other horror/sci-fi novels and films, including Donovan's Brain, Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, I Walked With A Zombie, and The Beast With Five Fingers.

In honor of Mr. Siodmak's birthday, here is the trailer for one of my favorite films he wrote, Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man. Granted, it isn't the greatest film of all time, but it provides loads of entertainment and has Bela Lugosi as Frankenstein's creature.

Yay to the author of The Wolf Man's rhyme!

"Even a man who is pure of heart and says his prayers by night
May become a wolf when the wolfsbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright"
