Even a man who is pure in heart And says his prayers by night may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the autumn moon is bright -- Curt Siodmak, "The Wolf Man" Screenwriter Curt Siodmak was a German Jew of Polish descent who fled Europe for Hollywood in the 1930s to escape persecution from the Nazis. So there's little wonder that his 1941 Universal horror classic "The Wolf Man" parallels the experiences of Jews in Europe before and during World War II. "The Wolf Man" revolves around an everyman, Lawrence Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr.)

"The Crimson Pirate" (1952), directed by Robert Siodmak. 104 minutes. No rating. A spoof of all those Errol Flynn pirate movies. The pirates say "arrrgh" a lot and tend to get their peg legs stuck in the grills over the hatches. And this time it's Burt Lancaster who gets to be gallant as hell.
