¡Feliz Cumpleaños, Boris Karloff!

Born November 23, 1887. Died February 2, 1969.

He was one of the most famous horror movie actors who ever lived and he was not so bad when he made movies outside of the horror movie genre either. He is also one of my all-time favorite actors but then you all probably guessed that.

He was not only the first -- and most famous -- actor to play the Frankenstein Monster in a non-silent movie but he was also the host of the old black-and-white horror series Thriller. He also managed to survive meeting Abbott and Costello but that is a story for another day.

Though he has been much imitated, Boris Karloff has never been equaled. And yes, he has been missed.
