    Description

    Boris Karloff 1960s Portraits and Candid Photos. Boris Karloff's passion for acting and devotion to his fans never left him and this lot honors the star both at his craft and at his leisure during the final decade of his life. Included are more than 40 shots: on a boat, at the beach, with a dog, chatting with Vanessa Redgrave, attending a premiere, visiting Sara and his two grandsons, and still playing cricket (even when nearing 80). Formats include some color 8" x 10" photos and snapshots and a fine variety of portraits, showing him actually a vitally handsome man to the very end. In overall Very Fine condition. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.
