Wow, check it out! We have a behind the scenes shot of Jack Pierce working his legendary make-up effects magic on none other than Lon Chaney Jr. on the set of Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man back in 1943. As always a huge thanks goes to Quint over at Ain’t It Cool News for sharing this remarkable snapshot of Horror history as well as to Scott Essman for providing the photo.

  1. Atari Adventure Square says:

    Pretty chill look for a savage beast.
    Like someone’s scratching him behind the ears (where he apparently keeps his lit cigarette).

  2. Perhaps Chaney and Pierce settled their differences by the time Frankenstein meets the Wolf Man rolled around? Remember that one behind the scenes shot where Chaney is about to throw a punch? :)
