scavenger hunt #57 | #02 Watch a Universal Monsters flick or a Hammer Horror
“While preparing to film the scene where the monster attacks Elizabeth, Mae Clarke admitted to Boris Karloff that she was worried that when she saw him in full make-up coming towards her, she might really be frightened.
Karloff told her that throughout the scene he would wiggle his pinkie finger out of sight of the camera so that she could always see that, despite the horrific makeup, she could always see her friend Boris waving at her and letting her know that she was safe.”
This fact and that brief scene with the little girl have made me fall in love with Karloff and his portrayal of the monster... he just wanted a friend to play with, poor guy 💔
