An American Werewolf in London, Production used Werewolf head and legs

original movie prop

These pieces originally came from Rick Baker (thanks very kindly to Propstore.com!) When researching, I turned up several polaroids of a "test costume" of the wolf being walked around the parking lot during production. On closer examination, we determined this head was clearly from that suit (and the legs likely from it as well). BTW, you'll note in the close up head shot there's a small lock of hair. When working on the restoring Bob Burns' original wolf costume from the film, we needed to "fill in" some missing hair on his cheek. I trimmed a small bit of hair from his underside and when the work was complete, these strands remained. Bob insisted I keep the lock of hair and it's a cherished memento of that experience!
