Boris Karloff "Frankenstein" Tin Sign

Boris Karloff "Frankenstein" Tin Sign



  • Product Information

    Karloffs fame and fortune with Frankenstein came relatively late in his career. Director James Whale was searching for somebody to play the Monster in his new production when he glimpsed Karloff in the canteen on the Universal back lot. Fascinated by the lines and characterful expressions of the actor’s face, he made sketches and, pleased with the result, determined to offer him the part. Karloff was 44 by the time the film premiered, and it transformed his life from a hungry bit part player in some eighty films to an overnight star.
