As part of the Boris Karloff Blogathon, hosted by Pierre Fournier of Frankensteinia. I figured I'd give Ol' William Henry Pratt some recognition as far as how he wooed us women. With his swooning lispy voice and the back problems I'm sure any of us women would have died to rub out (hold your comments Office fans). I honesly love everything about Boris Karloff, despite playing such spooktacular characters, Karloff was known in real life as a very kind gentleman who gave generously, especially to children's charities. Beginning in 1940, Karloff dressed up as Santa Claus every Christmas to hand out presents to physically disabled children in a Baltimore hospital. If being a horror icon and a philanthropist doesn't win your heart...I don't know what will. Boris has charmed many a women off screen, but I want to direct you to some of my favorite women that got to share some screen time with the Father of Frankenstein's Monster.
