Factory Entertainment is delighted to announce a new edition of a replica of one of the most iconic Universal Monsters props - Larry Talbot's Cane from 1941's, The Wolfman
The Original Prop
Purchased as a harmless gift, this cane ultimately becomes the instrument of Larry Talbot's destruction.
Multiple props were created for the production of 1941's The Wolfman by noted prop-maker Ellis Burman Sr., a functional hero prop and stunt props which were cast in rubber for actor safety.
The wolf head design was based on and hand-sculpted over an existing boar head cane, a popular motif on traditional walking canes.
Today, only a single rubber stunt cane head survives in the personal archive of collector extraordinaire Bob Burns, and the replica previously produced by us in 2013 was based on that piece. However, our team was recently provided with access to never-before-seen vintage reference photography of the hero prop, which allowed us to create a new, highly-detailed 3D model, from which we have recreated the hero prop as it appears when first seen in the Conliffe Antique Shop.
Not only is this edition of the cane more accurate to the hero prop, it now features an upgraded all metal handle construction and a solid acacia wood shaft. Best of all, due to improved manufacturing techniques, we’re excited to announce that this piece not only features significant upgrades, but is also available at a lower price.
Please note: Due to rights considerations, the language on the plaque has been modified slightly from the dialogue in the film at the request from the licensor.
Size: 37.5” long from the top of the wolf head to the end of the tip.
The shaft is solid hardwood (acacia) and the head is chrome plated brass.
The tip is chrome plated steel and is supplied with a removable rubber cap on the top.
