Boris Karloff has created a body of work that has never been supplanted by any other artist. He is still an iconic figure of our society. Children to the elderly immediately think of Mr. Karloff when reading Mary Shelley. Further, Mr. Karloff endured unspeakable discomfort in portraying these characterizations. He was so successful at this that for five years he was billed simply as:

KARLOFF

In addition, his talents never abated throughout his career. He gave top tier performances in “Frankenstein” (1931), “The Mummy” (1932), “The Black Cat” (1934), “The Bride of Frankenstein” (1935), “The Walking Dead” (1936), “The Son of Frankenstein” (1939), “The Body Snatcher” (1945), “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” (1966) and amongst the finest performances by anyone at any time in Peter Bogdanovich’s “Targets” (1967) which was his final film. “Targets” was performed when Mr. Karloff was in great pain yet this does not show in the movie.

Mr. Karloff literally was in starvation prior to his film success. This exemplified his dedication to the art of film. This dedication was so great that he risked his own career by being active in the Screen Actors Guild in order to alleviate some of the hardships in filmmaking that he endured.

Therefore, it is incumbent upon his fans to petition the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to consider presenting a lifetime award for the great art created by this gentle man.
