Question

Too large boots on camera stomp

Silent frightened form,

A twin star bard, consular kin

Smashing voice a charm.

Studded neck, soul of gold

His grown redeeming heart unfolds

For children’s joy or horror told

Both he took by storm

[spoiler=Secret answers!" :ph34r: ]Foul and rotting on the outside,

True goodness found at heart.

These are themes he's tackled expertly,

Despite limitations of his art.

From gods and monsters to flip book fun,

This thespian has plied his trade.

His performances, both bitter and sweet,

Could not have been better made.

Heh heh. Nice.

Wives? As many as Henry VIII,

A single issue though was his fate.

Unlike the monsters he portrayed.

He fought for the rights,

Of those with which he played.

Boris Karloff, the actor who played the monster of Frakenstein? He was also known as a charitable giver to children and even dressed up as santa. He was also the mummy.

Graven surreptitiously nails it. Bravisimo!

Boris Karloff

Karloff is most well known for his gripping portrayal of the Frankenstein monster in 1931. Unlike the creature from the original novel by Mary Shelly, the Hollywood monster was unable to speak, the result of bad cranial plumbing thanks to Fritz, a bungling lab assistant with little skill in sequestering quality cadaver parts. Though possessing a criminal brain (and a shocking pair of chic neck bolts), Karloff’s monster began his post-mortem escapades in Frankenstein’s dungeon as a timid, frightened being.

Karloff is the recipient of two Hollywood stars for both Cinema and television, certainly warranted through his long and fruitful contribution to both the cinematic arts and stage. His unique voice inspired the Bobby Pickett (and the Krypt Keepers) impersonation for the much beloved novelty hit "Monster Mash," and Karloff himself provided the voice-over for the Seuss cartoon "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," in which the Grinch's pitifully tiny heart grows three times as large in the end. Karloff’s original name is William Henry Pratt, whose brother, Sir John Henry Pratt served as a British diplomat, his older brothers all members of the British Foreign Service. In contrast to his on-screen persona, Karloff adored children, often played Santa at Christmas time, was a dedicated member of the Screen Actor's Guild, and served as volunteer rescue worker whenever duty called. What a guy!
