  1. Three wonderful photos, Dr. Gangrene! The top one is one of Sara Karloff's favorites of her dad; the Mummy is one of MY favorites--and that's one in which you can see the scarab ring so clearly--very cool; and that final one--the early makeup trial with the "horns". Three excellent choices--and three reasons to be a Karloff fan: because of FRANKENSTEIN, because of THE MUMMY--and because he was Boris! Happy Birthday, Mr. Karloff--and Happy Birthday to his daughter, my friend Sara Karloff Sparkman!

  2. Happy b-day to BK and Thanksgiving to all!

  3. Why thank you, Robert. I also felt this was a nice representation of Karloff photos, in and out of makeup. Long live Karloff!
