LET'S ALL JOIN THE CHORUS AS WE CELEBRATE BORIS!
Well fans, I promised a big announcement and here it is: the SCARED SILLY blog will be taking part in the 2009 Boris Karloff blogathon!
Beginning on November 23 — Karloff’s 122nd birthday — and on through the 29th, bloggers the world over will be posting about Boris, his life and his wide-ranging career. As of this writing, there are over 85 participating blogs.
Of course, Boris made several notable horror-comedies (including a couple with Abbott & Costello) and we'll take a look at them all here at SCARED SILLY.
But that's not all... in the week leading up to the blogathon, I'll also be offering up a special countdown featuring rare clips of "Uncle Boris" singing and dancing on TV variety shows, appearing in newsreel clips with his horror movie colleague Bela Lugosi, starring in TV commercials and more.
Before we get to the blogathon, be sure to join us for a review of Laurel & Hardy's classic short, "The Live Ghost" right here on Friday the 13th of November.
Until then, enjoy this batty Boris bash-up...
