Despite its title and the fact that it was made by Universal Studios, 1942's The Silver Bullet has nothing to do with werewolves. This is a western, starring Johnny Mack Brown as the hero and Fuzzy Knight as his comical sidekick. Brown seeks to avenge the death of his father, who was shot in the back by an unknown assailant. The only clue Brown has to go by is that his dad was killed by a silver bullet. And, no, the Lone Ranger didn't do it.
