Blue album leaf signed by horror legend Boris Karloff and singer Kenny Baker, with small magazine photos of both
Signature: "Boris Karloff" on verso, "Kenny/Baker", 4¾x3¾ album leaf. KARLOFF (1887-1969, born William Henry Pratt in Camberwell, London, England) was an English actor. Karloff had originally wanted a career in the diplomatic service, but he instead became one of Hollywood's most frightening actors. In 1931, he starred as the monster in the original Frankenstein, a role that had been turned down by Bela Lugosi. Karloff, who also scared the daylights out of movie-goers in the films The Mummy (1932) and The Ghoul (1933), also hosted and occasionally starred in the TV series Thriller. He gave one of the best of his many film performances in the 1968 Peter Bogdanovich film Targets, in which he virtually played himself - an aging star of horror movies. BAKER (1912-1985, born Kenneth Laurence Baker in Monrovia, California) was a singer and actor who first gained notice as a tenor on Jack Benny's radio program. Baker, who was replaced by Dennis Day when he left the show in 1939, later became a featured performer on Fred Allen's radio show Texaco Star Theater (1940-1942). He also appeared in a number of feature films from 1934-1947, including College Rhythm (1934), At the Circus (1939), The Harvey Girls (1946) and Calendar Girl (1947). Additionally, Baker and Mary Martin co-starred in the original Broadway production of One Touch of Venus. Lightly toned and creased. Discolored from adhesive under Baker's photo and from other photos in album; discoloration touches Karloff's signature but not Baker's. Leaf was neatly torn from album at one edge. One missing corner. Irregular edges. Karloff's photo has one missing corner and paper loss in lower right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
