    Karloff was a fantastic actor,who did great work in and out of the horror genre.Having to choose just one,I'd go with TARGETS.It's such a great part,tailor made for him.The scene where he tells his scary Arabian tale is prime Karloff.
    It always irks me that men like Karloff,Peter Cushing,Vincent Price and others of their ilk,consumate actors,were never acknowledged by the Academy when so many lesser performers were.There is a real bias against the horror genre,it's much easier to take home an Oscar for a mediocre drama than it is for a great horror film,they just aren't taken seriously.I wish we could at least get Christopher Lee an honorary Oscar while he's still around to pick one up.We're losing that generation of horror icons,it would be nice to show them a little appreciation.Everyone always says how great they were AFTER they are gone.
