About this title

Synopsis:

This chatty biography, written with the cooperation of the late actor's family, is crammed with anecdotes, personal opinions, and warm humor, said our reviewer (LJ 2/15/76) of this portrait of the horror star, who played every baddie from Frankenstein's monster to Dr. Seuss's Grinch. The text is buttressed with 150 photos and a complete filmography. This should still be "popular in public library collections". Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review:

Today, Boris Karloff is known principally for his portrayal of the Frankenstein monster and his narration of the television special How the Grinch Stole Christmas. He was, in fact, an amazingly talented actor whose characteristic lisp never kept him from playing a great variety of parts. Author Cynthia Lindsay was a personal friend of Karloff's for more than 30 years. As she tells the story of his life, she not only brings forth the consummate professional who felt that to act was to live but also describes Karloff as an extraordinarily warm and genteel man, the antithesis of the roles he is most famous for. A full filmography and hundreds of photographs are included in this loving biography.
