Just by playing you're off to the Pancake Parlour with either a voucher for $100 or $25. Lovely!
The King of horror movie actors, Boris Karloff, was born on this day in 1887 … and his performances still stand as some of the scariest of all time.
Boris became a star playing the Monster in the 1931 movie “Frankenstein” … and it was a physically taxing role.
To create that trademark monster walk, Boris wore shoes that EACH weighed:
(a) 6 kilograms
(b) 10 kilograms
(c) 14 kilograms
(a) 6 kilograms EACH … no wonder he walked funny!!
By the way, Boris Karloff’s real name was William Henry Pratt and he was born in England. He was actually a very kindly man who supported children’s charities and worked to improve conditions for actors in Hollywood. He married 6 times, had one child only and died in 1969, aged 81.
