BORIS KARLOFF Karloff signed this "Citizenship Information" document, possibly at a United States border crossing, in 1966. It's printed with his legal name of William Henry Pratt. Document signed "Boris Karloff" and initialed in three places "B. K." by Karloff. Also with pencil notations in an unknown hand near lower left corner. 1 page, 8¼x10¾. May 18, 1966. Titled: "Citizenship Information". Karloff may have signed this document at a United States border crossing, although it's unclear where along the border he signed it. It includes his legal name of William Henry Pratt, which is printed or typed above his signature, and his address in New York City. It also indicates that he was a British citizen when he signed this document, as well as his first date and point of entry into the United States (Portal, North Dakota on Oct. 12, 1913). Karloff (1887-1969, born William Henry Pratt in Camberwell, London, England) was a British 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 and creased. Two binder holes at top edge. Folded once vertically and twice horizontally. Otherwise in fine condition. Previously authenticated by PSA/DNA.
