Birthday star Colin Clive is best remembered for his portrayal of Dr. Frankenstein in James Whale’s two Universal Frankenstein films “Frankenstein” (1931) and “Bride of Frankenstein” (1935), both directed by James Whale. He is pictured left taking a break with Boris Karloff on the set of “Bride.” Clive was born on January 20, 1900.
//I know this is, like, REALLY late, but happy birthday @boris-in-the-wild, you amazing person :3 Btw this is their actual height difference, minus the ears and extra floof on Boris’s head because I imagined his ears and floof being kinda flattened down on his head while being measured and I thought that was adorable so yeah XD
Happy Birthday William Henry Pratt aka Boris Karloff (23 November 1887 - 2 February 1969)
One always hears of actors complaining of being typed– if he’s young, he’s typed as a juvenile; if he’s handsome, he’s typed as a leading man. I was lucky. Whereas bootmakers have the spend millions to establish a trademark I was handed a trademark free of charge. When an actor gets in a position to select his own roles, he’s in big trouble, for he never knows what he can do best. I’m sure I’d be damn good as Little Lord Fauntleroy, but who would pay ten cents to see it?
