art/history: some of you may deem this a bit 'cheaty', but i couldn't resist the opportunity to illustrate the magnificent boris karloff - & when i wasn't inspired to commemorate the anniversary of the death of claude francois, i seized on even the flimsiest premise in order to celebrate something that means the world to me. there is a question mark upon the historical accuracy of it, but some sources do insist that, #otd in 1818, mary shelley's 'frankenstein' was published for the first time. although her story has never been given the cinematic treatment it bloody well merits, in 1931, karloff did better than anyone else who ever portrayed the creature. there was something vulnerable in his eyes. do you see it?
