    Description

    Boris Karloff Pictures and Negatives from Radio's Information Please. During his Broadway run in Arsenic and Old Lace from 1941 to 1942, Boris Karloff paid several guest visits to radio's Information Please, a highly intellectual quiz show that revealed the contestants' (and Boris') wide range of knowledge. This lot features six original 8" x 10" b&w matte finish photos of Karloff on Information Please, three of him alone and three with fellow contestant Franklin P. Adams. All pictures have the photographer's stamp en verso and the lot comes with negatives of each shot. Excellent condition. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.
