    Description

    Boris Karloff 1930s Candid Photos. This trio of candid b&w photos of Boris Karloff all date from the late 1930s. The shots are copies of originals and include a 7.5" x 9.5" shot of the horror star relaxing between tennis rounds; a picture of a bespectacled Boris, his head shaved for Tower of London, with wife Dorothy by a snack bar; and a 5" x 8" picture of Boris (hair still growing back) escorting his mother-in-law. Nice variety, with Karloff in the tennis shot looking rather like a matinee idol. 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!
