Boris Karloff raised rare Bedlington Terriers while he lived in Brentwood, CA. One day he was walking them with his four-year old daughter Sara Karloff when they broke free and they ran up to an inebriated man stumbling down the street. The drunk begged Karloff for a ride to Cedars of Lebanon Hospital, claiming he just saw three sheep bark! Karloff obliged. (via)
Happy Birthday, Mr. William Henry Pratt (23 November 1887 – 2 February 1969) “Horror means something revolting. Anybody can show you a pailful of innards. But the object of the roles I played is not to turn your stomach - but merely to make your hair stand on end.” (Does anyone know where this picture is from? Boris certainly looked lovely as an old lady!)
