Sale Price $765.00
Moody b/w publicity photo of a Karloff in a coat and suit-and-tie, caught in a single light and looking over his shoulder. Signed "Sincerely" by him in blue ink.
Photograph signed "Sincerely/Boris Karloff" in blue ink. B/w, 4¾x6¾, printed on cardstock. 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. Lightly toned, soiled, silvered and bowed. Parts of signature have low contrast, and pen skipped while signing it, but it is still legible. Light scratches on image. Otherwise in fine condition.
