Boris Karloff Narrates Tales Of Mystery And Imagination LP 77
Every Friday night growing up, the routine in our family of ten with a neighboring family of eleven was neighborhood games until dusk, then home for a popcorn party to Horror Inc. followed by the half hour Shadow black and white series. That is how I got to learn all the classic horror films with Boris, Bela, Lon, Peter, Vincent or Godzilla the big ones featured. One night I remember we skipped the show to help a neighbor family raise a fallen tree by all hoisting a rope--lots of unity in our little village. Boris Karloff a classic trained British stage actor is the great storyteller in our history in the U.S. and everything he touched was golden. I later got his Thriller and Colonel March series--both recommended highly along with of course the Grinch and Frankenstein, etc.
