    Boris Karloff's Personal Scripts for Flair. This batch of Boris Karloff scripts from radio's Flair, in which he offered tips on family dynamics and child-raising, dates from 1960/1961. The seven scripts (ten pages) cover such topics as "Naughty Words", New Year's Eve, and a child's privacy ("To parents, the baby picture of Junior in his birthday suit may be 'utterly adorable'; to Junior -- now aged five -- it may be a source of inexpressible anguish when exhibited to visiting friends and relations"). The pages contain Karloff's annotation for accent and emphasis in his reading. Excellent condition. Unique material from a long-forgotten credit on the horror star's resume. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection, accompanied by a Letter of Provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.
