BORIS KARLOFF ON THE YOUTUBE - COUNTDOWN TO HALLOWEEN (Day 27)
First up, we have an episode of ROUTE 66 featuring Boris with Lon Chaney Jr. & Peter Lorre. This marks the final time Karloff and Chaney Jr. will wear their classic monster make-up for the Monster and Wolf Man respectfully. Enjoy:
Here we have a trailer for one of Boris' final films, THE SORCERERS, in which Karloff is back to playing another Mad Scientist of sorts:
Also known as A FOOL'S WORLD, MONDO BALORDO is a documentary in the style of RIPLEY'S BELIEVE IT OR NOT involving everything from bondage to midget love to lesbianism. What was sensational and exploitative back then just doesn't really shock today, however.
This promo for Karloff's show, THRILLER, was made to sell it to television.
