Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror: Boris Karloff

| No Comments


51HAZVXE3VL__SL500_AA240_.jpgMy apologies for not noting this sooner, but last February 2nd marked the 40th anniversary of the passing of horror film icon Boris Karloff, whose Thriller TV series I had discussed here a while back.  Rather than risk sounding maudlin about what an impression Mr. Karloff's performances gave me when I was growing up, watching his films on late night TV (and later, at art house theatre revivals and on home video) and reading any article or book that mentioned his work, I'm going to instead cite blogger Richard Harland Smith's  tribute at the Turner Classic Movies web site (with links)  here.  Mr. Smith (whose reminisces regarding Karloff's work are eerily similar to mine; yeah, I too collected Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, amongst other things) pretty much sums up why Boris Karloff's work still appeals to movie fans even after all these years.
