    BORIS DID A GREAT ROLE TOWARDS THE END ON TV SHOW “I SPY” AS A PROFFESSOR WHO SEES HIMSELF AS DON QUIXOTE ON A TRIP FROM BARCELLONA TO MADRID WITH KELLY AND SCOTT. BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED WORK ON HIS PART.

      I read some of your diatribes on the Internet. You seem to be some kind of animal nut. I suppose it’s remotely possible I’ve misjudged you. I have several dogs and care for them deeply. I’m not sure I believe the army stories, but maybe you have some redeeming qualities.

      • MIKE MALFI

        YES ANTOINE, I AM AN ANIMAL RIGHTS GUY. BELIEVE OR DISBELIEVE WHAT YOU CHOOSE, BUT I TOLD TRUTH. MAYBE NOW WE CAN HAVE A TRUCE. I’M GLAD TO HEAR YOU CARE DEEPLY FOR YOUR PETS. ANIMALS ARE GODS GIFT TO HUMANITY AND WE MUST APPRECIATE AND CARE FOR THEM. HAPPY NEW YEAR ANTOINE.

          Agreed. Even though you said some horrible things, I suppose it’s possible I overreacted.

          • MIKE MALFI

            WE BOTH DID. PEACE.

          • Antoine

            You’re right. You more than me, but no need to split hairs. Peace.

    For “Other” I voted for “Targets”, and was surprised to see it came in second, It was director Peter Bogdonavich’s movie debut (he also co-starred), and conversely it was Karloff’s final movie role, that of a (who else?!) veteran horror movie star named Byron Orlok. One of his old movies (in which Karloff co-starred)was playing at a drive-in theater, with Orlok as host, but a sniper (who’s just killed his entire family and a couple of motorists on the freeway BTW) starts picking off members of the audience in their cars, prompting a quick exit by everyone. Orlok then says “They’re certainly loving us, aren’t they?!” Though the rest of his movies were very good, Karloff will always be best remembered for his portrayal of the Frankenstein monster.

      Have to look it up, but I think it was really his last American film. As I remember, he did go afterwards to Mexico and make some films there.

    I loved Boris Karloff in “Die, Monster, Die.” I saw it a few years ago on cable TV. He was always such a gentleman, but with a creepy edge. I loved his narrative portrayal of the Grinch in “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” but I don’t know if it fits in this category. I haven’t seen any of his movies in so long, I don’t remember what the movies on the list were about!

  • Nicolas

    I did pick Targets, but Black Sabbath holds a special place, I think he is the most frightening in that film. When he says, “I’m hungry”.

    How about “The Lodger” and “The House of Wax” for true horror that were not Boris Karloff films?
