Boris Karloff


Boris Karloff Trivia


  • Trivia

    • During the production of Frankenstein (1931) there was some concern that seven year old Marilyn Harris, who played Maria, the little girl thrown into the lake by the creature, would be overly frightened by the sight of Boris in costume and make-up to play the scene. When the cast was assembled to travel to the location, Marilyn ran from her car directly up to Karloff, who was in full make-up and costume, took his hand and asked "May I drive with you?" Delighted, and in typical Karloff fashion, he responded "Would you, darling?" She rode to the location in the star's limo with "The Monster."
