:blowkiss: Thank you! :rose: It almost feels like split second when the mask came off and this just might be Karloff as himself ... Makes one pause, observe and ponder.

Never watched that movie, but I really should. :)

Everytime I see a photo/drawing of Boris, I don't think of Frankenstien, I think of Dr. Suess's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" (the cartoon version, NOT the Jim Carrey Version) Boris's voice is perfect for the Grinch. :heart: :)

Haha! OK, this may sound blasphemous but more than his on screen acting I LOOOOVE his voice: readings, plays, .. If HE (or Christopher Lee, oh-god-please-do!) would read Hegel, one just might become an expert on the subject. Preparing a Karloff audio collection, it's more than 2,5 GB in size (many files in duplicates because of different quality and sources, also 4 rare TV shows) and it includes 2(two!) different radio recordings of Arsenic and Old Lace! Yup, found them and having a blast listening to them. Ah, I would sooo play Aunt Martha! *... just a pinch of CYANIDE!* :iconcoffeeplz::iconpotionplz: OK, it's the wine, really.

Uuu, the cartoon Grinch is frightful. It's visually a very cruel animation. Poor dog. It's worse than Tom and Jerry!
Ah, to me he's Mr. Polly from H.G. Welles: ''The History of Mr. Polly'' - just about the funniest goodhearted comedy/drama I ever heard (and except for the mother of those three cousins - perfectly cast in every way). Almost believable: when Polly at the end says he'd came back as a mellowish warmish kinda ghost - it's easy to imagine Bill.

One of the local AM stations in Philly used to play some of the classic radio shows,and this one in particular,I remember. The premis of the show itself was to showcase the popular films for that season by condensing them into a half hour play in front of a live audience. The star of the film recreated his role, but the rest of the cast were guests. I really believe Boris had fun on Arsenic and Old Lace!

Awesome! I would love to hear them (if I can find them somehow)! :)

Yeah, he is mean and cruel, but I'm not sure why, but that is what I always think of. I don't think I've ever seen that. I'll have to look for it. :)
