    Description

    Three Boris Karloff Cricket Pictures. Boris Karloff called himself "the happy rabbit" of the Hollywood Cricket Club, playing his beloved sport at every opportunity and saving his mementoes of the sport throughout his life. This lot includes copies of a 7.5" x 9.5" b&w photograph of Boris, circa 1933, posing for a team shot with his fellow players, including Sir C. Aubrey Smith and H. B. Warner; a 3.5" x 4.5" b&w snapshot of Boris (in Hollywood Cricket Club cap, striped jacket, and white slacks) posing with teammate Desmond Roberts; and a 2.5" x 3.5" team shot (different from the first one described), with Boris in cricket jacket. Some minor creases on the pictures; otherwise, in Very Good condition. Fascinating personal photos of "the Monster" at play. From the Boris Karloff Estate Collection. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Sara Karloff Sparkman.
