Marvelously illustrated with more than 200 rare images from the silent era through the 1970s, this joyous treasure trove features film and television’s most famous actors and actresses celebrating the holidays, big and small, in lavishly produced photographs. Join the stars for festive fun in celebrating a variety of holidays, from New Year’s to Saint Patrick’s Day to Christmas and everything in between. Legends such as Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford, Judy Garland, and Audrey Hepburn spread holiday cheer throughout the calendar year in iconic, ironic, and illustrious style. These images, taken by legendary stills photographers, hearken back to the Golden Age of Hollywood, when motion picture studios devised elaborate publicity campaigns to promote their stars and to keep their names and faces in front of the movie-going public all year round.

“Boris Karloff- More Than A Monster” booksigning at Larry Edmunds Bookshop

 

  

Friday, April 22, 2011

7:30 p.m.

The new biography, “Boris Karloff- More Than A Monster” by Stephen Jacobs weighs in at 3.5 pounds and 568 pages. According to Sara Karloff, this authorized book is “the DEFINITIVE book on my father!”

 

Drop by on Friday, April 22 at 7:30 p.m. as Sara Karloff signs copies of Stephen Jacobs book when she joins us for a salute to her father. Come watch “Boris Karloff- THIS IS YOUR LIFE” and see color home movies of Karloff as the monster. A true celebration of the legend !

 

This is the new authorised and definitive biography. Boris Karloff – a name synonymous with horror. Drawing on detailed research, previously unpublished letters, and interviews with those who knew him this new biography dispels the often repeated myths associated with the star – many perpetuated by Karloff himself – and reveals a wealth of new information about the private and professional life of Boris Karloff. Although forever associated with his breakthrough role of ‘the Monster’ in Frankenstein (1931) Boris Karloff had a career that spanned almost 50 years and over 150 movies – from the era of the silent picture through to the days of the ‘Swinging Sixties’. His roles in “Bride of Frankenstein”, “The Mummy”, “The Black Cat”, and many others – most now considered classics of the genre – ensured his reputation as ‘The King of Horror’. Born William Henry Pratt in Camberwell, South London in 1887 Karloff defied family expectations and rejected a life in Government service. Instead he emigrated to Canada were he finally found work as a professional actor. After years touring Western Canada and the United States he arrived in Hollywood and tried his hand at movie acting. But success did not come overnight and the actor worked in pictures for over a decade before being asked to test for the role of the Monster. As public tastes changed Karloff was willing to adapt to the times and embraced work on the theatre, radio and television. His experience of the movie studios treatment of his colleagues led Karloff to advocate actors’ rights and he became instrumental in the creation of the Screen Actors Guild. Few actors ever achieved the iconic status Karloff has been awarded. This is the only book that tells the whole story!

Digging deep into the vaults of Warner Brothers and the collections of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as well as other private archives, this book explores the complex personal and professional relationship of Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland. Flynn, even 50 years after his death, continues to conjure up images to the prototypical handsome, charismatic ladies’ man; while de Havilland, a two-time Best Actress Academy Award winner, is the last surviving star of Gone with the Wind. Richly illustrated with both color and black-and-white photos, most previously unpublished, this detailed history tells the sexy story of these two massive stars, both together and apart.

 

Biography 

Robert Matzen has appeared on BBC 2 and BBC Radio 4 and was the writer and director of George Washington’s First War, Pursuit of Honor, and When the Forest Ran Read. He is the author of Carol Lombard: A Bio-Bibliography and the co-author of Errol Flynn Slept Here. He lives in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania.
