She-Wolf of London was a 1946 horror film directed by Jean Yarbrough and produced by Universal Pictures. Based on a screenplay by George Bricker, it was released theatrically in the United States on May 17th, 1946. Although the movie has the trappings of a werewolf film, and was marketed as such, it is actually a crime thriller and there are no werewolves in the movie at all. The film takes place in London, England around the turn of the century and focuses on Phyllis Allenby, a young woman engaged to marry an attractive barrister named Barry Lanfield. A series of bizarre animal attacks begin taking place in the park near Phyllis' ancestral family home, and she begins to fear the legend of the Allenby Curse. After a ten-year-old boy is found mauled to death, Phyllis convinces herself that she is not only the murderer, but a werewolf as well.
