    Description

    Boris Karloff as "Mother Muffin" on The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. This lot is hopelessly devoted to Karloff's awesomely kinky Mother Muffin, who capered unforgettably on a 1966 episode of TV's The Girl from U.N.C.L.E. It includes two 1991 letters to Evelyn Karloff from Stefanie Powers ("April Dancer" herself), one a photocopy and the other an original with her signature; a color 8" x 10" close-up of Boris in Mother Muffin bonnet and wig; three black and white 8" x 10" publicity pictures, two of them portraits of Boris as Mother, the other showing him with Stefanie Powers (in tights) and Robert Vaughn (in a guillotine), with a negative of one of the portraits; and a two page color magazine feature on Karloff and the episode. In Very Fine condition. A valentine to one of the most infamous and delightful performances of Boris Karloff's late life. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.
