1940 Charity Baseball Game Featuring Boris Karloff As The Frankenstein Monster!


Legendary comedian Buster Keaton had the right idea in the picture above, if Boris Karloff dressed as the Frankenstein Monster is planning on taking the base your are standing on during a game of baseball it’s better to just drop your glove and go ahead and feint.

Thanks to Crow T Robot 1313 on YouTube we have a brief snippet of the beginning of that Charity Baseball game back in 1940, you’ll notice that Jack Pierce can be seen on Karloff’s left as he emerges from the dugout, it appears he might be checking out his make-up on Karloff.
