THE WEREWOLF - Mischa Bakaleinikoff - "In The Cafe" (1956)

Arguably, the best werewolf or wolfman movie ever made, "The Werewolf" is a favorite around here & just claws, snarls & bites with holiday spirit all year long!

So drop another nickel in The Jukebox, and listen to the swingin' sound of everyone's fave, Mischa Bakaleinikoff. Misch had been working on movie music since 1929. The list includes an uncanny array of films like "The Giant Claw", "It Came From Beneath The Sea", "Creature With The Atom Brain", "Earth Vs. The Flying Saucers", "Jungle Moon Men", "Killer Ape", and "Cry Of The Werewolf." The man's musical talents are beyond extraordinary! The narration is by the director Fred F. Sears!

SOUNDCLIP NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Charles Horvath plays a most excellent unsavory character,as a mugger turned corpse.

"The Werewolf" is not real big, but he's fast, he's mean, he's brutal and not to be trifled with!!

Here's a short piece back at the cafe,Trap Trash Talkin' with some good bar insight & dialogue and more of Mischa's terrific swing in the background!

Seems they forgot about one little thing! He's a Werewolf!!!
