A Fete Worse than Death

On his best days, impaired by despair,
Merry festivals, Larry can't bear
Both his hands he is wringing
He can't stand all the singing
When depressed by his garish new hair.

Larry Talbot, the "Wolf Man" (Lon Chaney Jr) grabs the Festival Singer (Adia Kuznetzoff) in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (Roy William Neill; 1943). Title by ill-feted David Cairns.
