    Who wrote "Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers" poem?
    It`s supposedly from the movie Wolfman (which I`ve never heard of) but I don't know what other website to go to that actually has the poem and the poet. There are a few different ways of writing it:
    "Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night may become a wolf when the moon is full and bright" --which is the way I first heard it
    "Even the man who is pure in heart and say's his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the Wolfbane blooms and the moon is pure and bright"
    "Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night,
    may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms and the Autumn moon is bright"
    There may be other versions but these are the ones I know. Does anyone know who wrote this poem?
    Thanks!

    It was said by Jenny Williams, a character in the movie, The Wolf Man. Imdb and Wikipedia have information about the movie. I didn't check, but Imdb might mention who wrote the screenplay.

    One site says the poem is from the werewolf movies of the '40s. The site quoted Lon Chaney, Jr.
