Boris Karloff: A Critical Account of His Screen, Stage, Radio, T


88 photos, appendices, notes, bibliography, index
487pp. library binding 1991

The result of nearly 15 years of research, this comprehensive analysis of Boris Karloff’s life and career, incorporates criticism, in-depth production information, discussion of major cinematic themes and characters, and a look at the historical periods and events depicted in the films. Extensive biographical and career information is dovetailed with a discussion of the classic Hollywood era in order to examine Karloff’s overall contribution to American cinema.

Each of Karloff’s horror films is examined at length, as well as his contributions to other media. Over 100 posters, portraits, film scenes and candid photos illustrate the text, and numerous contemporaries (Evelyn Karloff, Laurence Olivier, Henry Brandon, Ian Wolfe, Zita Johann, others) are quoted throughout.
