Thanks for posting that. Dave, it's only 12 minutes, fyi. It loops, as Abin mentions.
The set decoration stood out (lots of windows). Also, it was interesting that despite the short run (typical of many silents, especially Edison's) they chose to spend so much time on the creation of the monster (which isn't detailed in the book).

Some classic monster movies go into the '50s (e.g., Creature from the Black Lagoon). Hammer is probably indicative of a change. They start out very similar to Universal but upped the sexiness and blood until the '70s when they were more in line with exploitation flicks.

Anyway, The Wolf Man is also my favorite; favorite monster movie and favorite werewolf story ever.
