Boris 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), 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. "Boris Karloff - Tales of Mystery" comics series was published from October, 1964 to November, 1967. Multiple staple holes at top left. Two filing holes at top. Pencil note (unknown hand) in top right corner. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
