Its Alive! Happy Birthday Boris Karloff

Born November 23, 1887, William Henry Pratt soon went on to become one of the most enduring horror icons of all time.

As Boris Karloff, he would make his mark in cinema history with his sensitive portrayal of the Man-Made Monster in James Whale's adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein...

To celebrate Karloff's birthday and his vast range of film work, this week will be given over to a Boris Karloff Blogathon, with all posts dedicated to looking at some well-loved, and perhaps some overlooked, Karloff 'The Uncanny' classics.

Today is also Sara Karloff's birthday and she sent a message to Pierre Fournier over at Frankensteinia to say she is looking forward to reading all the blogs about her father and his work this week. Head over to Frankensteinia to read her message.

Karloff, Gooooood!
