NIGHT KEY (1937) A kindly old inventor (Boris Karloff looking amazingly
like Gepetto from Pinocchio) has his Night Key invention stolen by his
employer. The device is a security lock system for stores, banks, etc.
After being crushed by his boss's callousness, he takes to a life of
crime. THE STRANGE DOOR (1951) Karloff is a weird doctor and Charles
Laughton is an evil aristocrat in this melodrama of mystery and torture
in an old castle. THE BLACK CASTLE (1952) Gothic horror mixed with
adventure (similar to THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME). A spooky castle, a
demented castle master, Boris Karloff and Gargon (Lon Chaney Jr.)! What
more could you ask for. Richard Greene stars. THE CLIMAX (1944) The
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA sets in lavish color with Karloff keeping a dead
wife in the cellar of the opera house. This film gets knocked for the
songs and snappy patter getting in the way -- but I think it's fun and
Karloff is great. Turhan Bey is the good guy. TOWER OF LONDON (1939)
Karloff, Rathbone and Price in this ancient tale of rivalry. Karloff is
awesome as Mord the Torturer.
