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.

  2. At this website:

    I was researching the famous Anna from the story Anna and the King and I found "Background historical research ... done by Dr. W.S. Bristowe, an English scholar. The above information was extracted from an article written by William Warren and published in the fascinating Traveller's Tales - Thailand."

    Anna Leonowens
    "According to Dr Bristowe, Anna was already busily burying her past when she arrived in Singapore.... Among other things, this required a complete break with her sister Eliza back in India, a step she may have been doubly glad she took - given the social prejudices of the time - if word ever reached her that Eliza's eldest daughter married a Eurasian named Pratt. As thorough as ever, Dr Bristowe traced that family, too, and made the engaging discovery the youngest child of the union - that is, Anna's grand-nephew - became the actor Boris Karloff, of Frankenstein fame.

  3. Thank you for that insightful information. Karloff truly was a fascinating man with quite an interesting background. No doubt that he learned early on from his family to keep his personal life as private as possible.
