Actor Boris Karloff born here
Legendary horror actor Boris Karloff was born here.
Location: 36 Forest Hill Rd, East Dulwich, SE22 0RR
Description: Actor Boris Karloff (1887-1969), real name William Henry Pratt, was born not in the laboratory of a remote eastern European castle on a stormy night, but in leafy Dulwich into a respectable family of diplomats.
Though famous for playing a grunting monster made of reassembled body parts, he was in fact a thoroughly well-spoken Englishman: mild-mannered, a keen cricketer and gardener.
His birthplace is now a Turkish restaurant, with an entrance adorned by Karloffian memorabilia.
Karloff starred in as Frankensteinís monster three times, in the 1931 original, ĎBride of Frankensteiní in 1935 and ĎSon of Frankensteiní in 1939.
