Ray Bradbury on Boris Karloff

In 1969, shortly after the passing of the fine actor Boris Karloff, Forrest j Ackerman put together a book called THE FRANKENSCIENCE MONSTER, a tribute which contains thoughts and observations about Karloff from a number of people, including Robert Bloch, Christopher Lee, Vincent Price, and Ray Bradbury. Ray wrote, in part: "He [Boris Karloff] taught us about death; that's what he was here for....I met Karloff only once and it was as the gentleman I guessed him to be that we were introduced, chatted for a short while, and never met again. The memory however is a good one and will last." Over 25 years later, Scott Allen Nollen, film historian and Karloff biographer, wrote Ray, asking him for more details about that meeting as well as Ray's favorite Karloff performances. Ray wrote back, and you can read Mr. Nollen's letter and Ray's brief reply by clicking on the link below (the correspondence went up for sale at auction back in 2008):
