Karloff as Morgan
The Old Dark House is a creepy film. Stranded motorists in an old, cavernous house that looks like it'll fall apart soon. They are greeted at the door by Boris!! I'm surprised they stuck around.
When the client requested this particular character, I found this amazing still of Karloff. I immediately knew I wanted to do a mostly monochromatic piece. Can't explain why, sometimes it just works out this way. The lighting was great, as was the make up by the amazing Jack Pierce. Absolute perfection!
