Karloff’s got a monstrous hold on arts·meme

Why did arts·meme blog on Boris Karloff yesterday? Only the god-of-blogs knows for certain.

I don’t know a thing about Boris Karloff, really. I just liked the photo of the monster Frankenstein and little Maria from Location Filming in Los Angeles.

You can join me in catching up, by attending “A Night for Boris Karloff” coming up at Larry Edmunds Bookshop on Hollywood Boulevard. The evening features a telecast of Karloff in “This is Your Life” and home movies. Sara Karloff, the monster’s perfectly normal offspring, will be there signing books.

Don’t forget that Larry Edmunds sits right across the street from Musso & Frank Grill, the marvelous, atmospheric period restaurant with two brilliant menu items: i) martinis and ii) sourdough bread and butter. If that’s your idea of a good meal (it’s mine), you’re in business. Beyond that, you’re on your own.
