Like I said...a cool drink of water this one.
Seriously ladies! Its like he was Sean Connery before Sean Connery was even Sean Connery.
This kind of sex appeal just isn't even fair.
The thing I hadn't previously known about him was something any airhead such as myself could find by just traipsing through his wikipedia entry, about how he took the name Boris Karloff to avoid bringing shame or embarrassment upon his family. I guess thats one way to look at it, but what if he just wanted a fresh start? Maybe the name Pratt just wasn't doing it for him. Its not like he just picked some other generically white name. Boris Karloff? Really, William? So sure, its noble to say that you want to protect or buffer your family from any public disgrace or shame you might bring upon them by being connected to an...actor (shiver in disgust), but I think its just that he wanted to be Boris Karloff. So he just did. He really, really did. And it was definitely not shameful and it was 100% undead sexy.
The guy was born in 1887.
More to come on blog stalking, changing your identity, and bringing shame and disgrace upon your family. Thanks for "joining"!
