KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN: BORIS KARLOFF: THE MAN BEHIND THE MONSTER

Unread post by silents_are_golden » Thu Sep 20, 2018 1:51 am

Hello to all from Tom Hamilton.

Please check out the link below to view the launch video of our just started campaign for my new documentary: Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster. We actually started filming this in the UK in July but have been picking up speed over the last 6 weeks while in Toronto and plan to film a whole bunch of interviews in New Jersey and LA over the next 2 months.


https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/10 ... =Karloff

It would be terrific if any of you want to pledge, but also great if you can share it with fellow Karloff and Horror fans.

Also we're looking for any copies/Kinescopes that might exist of any of the following BK TV appearances:
"Theatre '62: The Paradine Case" (1962 TV),
"The Secret World of Eddie Hodges" (1960 TV) - THIS IS A TOP WANT
"Shirley Temple's Storybook: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1958 TV),
"Lux Video Theatre: The Man Who Played God" (1957 TV), ep:, Even the Weariest
"Climax!: Bury Me Later" (1956 TV),
"The Alcoa Hour: Even the Weariest River" (1956 TV), a Western done in blank verse with Christopher Plummer.
"The Best of Broadway: Arsenic and Old Lace" (1955 TV) - VERSION WITH PETER LORRE & ORSON BEAN - not the 1962 Hallmark version.
"CBS Television Workshop: Don Quixote" (1952 TV)
"The Boris Karloff Mystery Playhouse-any episode" (1949 TV)
"The Ford Theatre Hour: Arsenic and Old Lace" (1949) again, not to be confused with the later versions.

Thanks for checking out the campaign and for asking about these rare shows.

I'm in.
C'mon folks.
I watched Toms doc on Leslie Howard on TV here in the UK a few months back. Excellent.
