    Boris Karloff Signed "House of Frankenstein" Contract Amendment. A two-page contract amendment dated September 23, 1944, guaranteeing Boris Karloff certain levels of billing in the credits and promotional materials for House of Frankenstein, initialed on the front page and signed on the second by the actor in black ink. The movie would be Karloff's last film associated with the Frankenstein Monster. By this point, Glenn Strange had stepped into the role, and during production Karloff would personally coach Strange on how the Monster should be played. The document is in Very Fine condition with mild toning, handwritten notations in pencil to the top left corner, a very light tear on the lower left of the front page, and staples and binder holes to the top. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
