Early to Dead, Early to Rise

Lid pulled off, and the garlic displaced,
Larry's coffin two varlets defaced
When the moon filters in
Fur will soon cover skin,
And with paw and a snarl they're embraced.

Larry Talbot (Lon Chaney Jr) reaches for a duo of grave robbers (Tom Stevenson and Cyril Delevanti) in the moody opening sequence of Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (Roy William Neill; 1943).
