An interesting documentary about one of the best movie stars of all time.
20 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Boris Karloff first started out as a person that lived with a good family while he was growing up, but his life was unlucky most of the time, until he stared as the monster in "Frankenstein" (1931) at the age of 43 years old. In this documentary, a lot of people, such as Richard Gordon, Joe Dante, and many other guys discuss a lot about Karloff's life during his acting career. From "Frankenstein" to "Targets" (1968), he has been in many good movies, and has become one of the greatest movie stars of all time. If you ever see the "Frankenstein 75th Anniversary Edition" DVD in any stores or on the internet, that is where this documentary is found on. Watching this documentary will be well worth your time and you might know a little more about Boris Karloff's life.
