The Werewolf of Washington (1973)
Der Werwolf von Washington

Nomination Year: 2011
SYNOPSIS:  Dean Stockwell plays Jack Whittier, a competent but timid Washington Press Secretary who, while on location in Hungary, gets bitten by a werewolf. You can guess what happens during the next full moon, when he's back in D.C. And it seems no matter how he tries to explain his predicament, nobody believes him... until too late.

Oblivious

Mobil Supreme Stops Your Engine from Growling
The lady is an editor-in-chief of a bigtime paper. But somewhere along the way, she picked up a hitchhiker: Dean in wolf-form (mmmphhh!), on top of her car. She stops at a gas station, and despite Dean's loud growls two INCHES from her face, this one-time top investigative journalist doesn't turn around and see him there, not even out of the corner of her eye, until it's too late.

Stupidest-Looking Monster

Wereypuff, I Choose You!
Here we get to see Dean's transformation in full. To me, he seems more like half man/half cockapoo than half wolf. He crawls around on all fours.

Inane Dialogue

He's Still Less of a Wolf Than Clinton Was
Jack had transformed aboard Air Force One and attacked the President and the Chinese Ambassador. Someone comes in and announces that "the President will be okay...it was just a bite." The senator yammers stupid orders for a cover-up. We're then treated to a shot of the White House. We hear a howl.

"WHAT?!"

Midget Mad Scientist??
Dean transforms within the Pentagon during a meeting of the Joint Chiefs, and he's on the loose. He finds his way into the bowels of the building and stumbles upon the REAL secret of the Pentagon: A black-ops lab headed by a little-person mad scientist, who treats him like a pet doggie. WHAT?! This was not a one-off, by the way. The midget doctor is a real character that appears in later scenes and who wants the secret to lycanthropy.
