  1. Figures a girl wrote the script I can't believe how stupid this style story is from a to B to C to D it gets stupider and stupider and they actually greenlighted this story

  2. It's funny how often he says "As sure as my name is Boris Karloff ….." but it really wasn't.
    "William Henry Pratt was born on November 23, 1887 in Camberwell, London, England ….. he emigrated to Canada in 1909 and joined a touring company based out of Ontario and adopted the stage name of "Boris Karloff." 
    Which is why one of his nicknames was 'Billy'. For anyone wanting some more of his old movies and shows check out

  3. Werner Klemperer tested in the genius range IQ.
    He was a violin virtuoso.
    The klink character he played was the antithesis of who he really was.
    Often it takes a very intelligent individual to convincingly portray a nincompoop.

  4. 2 sad problems here… First, no one listens anymore!!! We all know why tho…way too much dishonesty!!! Second, people make it real hard to do good things 😩
