Sarah French- Boris Karloff, a well known actor in the 1930's was born in London, England in 1887. He died at age 81 in 1969. Karloff's real name was William Henry Pratt but went by the stage name Boris Karloff. He starred in the movie "the mummy" in 1932 but also went on to star in movies such as "Bride of Frankenstein" (1935) and "Son of Frankenstein (1939).
There's something very appealing about the "handcrafted" look of some old movie posters.This one especially has a very nice looking title which looks like it could have been cut out of construction paper with scissors. These sharp angles lend themselves well to the horror genre in my opinion.
