Enjoy yourself on Boris Karloff's birthday!

About Boris Karloff
Boris Karloff, born William Henry Pratt on November 23, 1887 in Camberwell, London, England, became one of filmdom's most famous horror actors. On whether or not he resented being typed as a "horror star": "One always hears of actors complaining of being typed - if he's young, he's typed as a juvenile; if he's handsome, he's typed as a leading man. I was lucky. Whereas bootmakers have to spend millions to establish a trademark, I was handed a trademark of charge. When an actor gets in a position to select his own roles, he's in big trouble, for he never knows what he can do best. I'm sure I'd be damn good as little Lord Fauntleroy, but who would pay ten cents to see it?"
