My Halloween suggestion for an icon of horror cinema with an important double anniversary this year.



2019 marked the 100th anniversary of Boris Karloff film debut. His first appearance in The Lightning Raider (1919) would be the beginning of a long career that would include 207 titles, including posthumous roles.

Karloff would grow to become one of the icons of horror cinema, but his work extended in several genres and he remains one of the most recognizable faces of classic cinema.

2019 also marks the 50th anniversary of Karloff's death.

To honor Boris Karloff in this double anniversary

Which do you consider his best character?

I thought Poelzig was very interesting in 'The Black Cat' and his performance was great but I love The Grinch. Good poll and great for Halloween season, too. :)

May I suggest a small edit? (the two lines brought together below)
