During the week of Thanksgiving, some 100 blogs will participate in the Karloff Blogathon in celebration of the great actor's birthday, November 23. The effort has been organized by Pierre Fournier of the very excellent Frankensteinia blog.
My contribution to the effort will be reviews of three Karloff films that sees him playing three very different parts. I've no doubt that there will be much historical knowledge and critical insights to be gained from the hundreds of other posts that will be appearing elsewhere, but here I will do what I do--review movies! Karloff was a foundation stone of the horror movie genre, and he continues to have an impact more than 30 years after his passing, and it will be fascinating to read what all those writers have to say.
Here are stills from the three films I will be covering. Check back on 11/23, 11/26 and 11/29 for the reviews.
