Boris Karloff: Film & TV List

Karloff the Uncanny! His voice sent chills down people's spines and his horror pictures terrified millions. The dedicated actor had appeared in hundreds of stage productions, numerous radio and television programs, and a phenomenal number of films from 1919 until his unfortunate death in 1969. His portrayals of the Frankenstein Monster, The Mummy, and Fu Manchu are legendary and his classic narration of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (1966) is an old-time holiday favorite. In contrast to the villainous roles he is most often remembered for, Boris Karloff was a kindhearted and intelligent man, making him one of the most beloved actors in show business. The British-born actor took particular delight in putting smiles on children's faces and his generosity was especially evident with his regular contributions to charities for disabled children and children's literacy programs. What separated Karloff from many other horror film stars of the time, was his ability to make the villains he played seem tragic and even sympathetic for the audience. The following is a listing of the brilliant actor's impressively long film and television credits.

Bela Lugosi: Film & TV List

He was one of the greatest and legendary stars of horror film history. Suave, debonair, and always the gentleman to his adoring public, Bela Lugosi was the boogeyman of many erotic nightmares with his most famous role and definitive portrayal of Count Dracula. However, Lugosi first began his acting career on the stage, appearing in nearly two hundred productions that would make just about any actor today quite envious. His early efforts as a film actor began in his native homeland of Hungry from 1917-1918, before continuing his career in Germany from 1919-1922. Ultimately, Lugosi made the United States his permanent home where he reached true stardom, becoming one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. From 1923 up until his death in 1956, Lugosi played everything from secret agents, mad doctors, villainous butlers, dashing vampires, and grotesque beings.
