    Description

    Boris Karloff in Targets, House of Evil, and I Spy. Many Karloff fans consider his brilliant performance in Peter Bogdanovich's Targets (1968) his apotheosis, and this lot includes twelve 8" x 10" shots from that unforgettable film, as well as two copies of a 5" x 7" French ad for the film and a negative of the ad. Additionally, the lot contains an 8" x 10" shot from a 1967 Karloff guest appearance on TV's I Spy with Bill Cosby and Robert Culp (with negative), and a candid shot from House of Evil, one of the star's final American/Mexican horror films. The shot shows Karloff with the film's director Jack Hill, who has signed: "To Sara Best wishes Jack Hill 'House of Evil'." In Fine condition. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.
