    Boris Karloff Signed Items. The long-reigning king of Hollywood horror, Boris Karloff made a name for himself in the '30s and '40s in a number of classic horror movies: "Frankenstein" (and three of its sequels), "The Mummy," "The Mask of Fu Manchu," "The Old Dark House," "The Black Cat," and others. Featured here is a page from a small notepad signed by Karloff in pencil (with aged cellophane tape across the top and bottom edges), a signed 3" x 5" black-and-white photo of the actor secretarial signed in purple ink (in excellent condition), and a vintage 10" x 8" color promo still from "Curse of the Crimson Altar" (some surface wear to the top and bottom edges).
