    Description

    Emile LaVigne "Wolf Man" Make-Up Hair. A generous portion of fine yak hair used by make-up artist Emile LaVigne in order to transform Lon Chaney Jr. into the Wolf Man for the 1948 horror/comedy Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. This hair comes from the full moon sequence in which Chaney actually morphed into the Wolf Man via special effects photography and gradual make-up application that lasted for hours, taking its toll on both the actor and the make-up man. It was Chaney's fifth appearance as the character -- "He was my baby!" said Chaney affectionately of the Wolf Man -- and the last time the werewolf would appear in a Universal picture until Van Helsing in 2004. In Excellent condition.From the estate of Emile LaVigne.
