Description

    Boris Karloff's Personal Script Pages for Flair. Even the most ardent Karloff fans have forgotten (or perhaps were never aware) that the star recorded daily spots for the radio show Flair. The years were 1960 and 1961 and the topics of Karloff's one-minute chats were family and child care. This collection of 16 script pages include 14 different spots, concerning such topics as baby talk, sitting still (an "assignment more difficult than climbing Mount Everest without a snowpick", he asserts), disciplining a child, family trips, and more. There is considerable annotation by Karloff in pen and pencil, notably in which words and phrases to emphasize in his readings. It's fun to imagine Hollywood's Horror King delivering these prosaic lessons, in Excellent condition. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection, accompanied by a letter of provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
