It's hard to find an actor more closely tied to classic horror than Boris Karloff. Just the sound of his voice is enough to send a shiver up the spine. Ironically, his most iconic role, Frankenstein’s Monster, is mostly silent. When Karloff donned the famous makeup in 1931, he cemented his place in horror history.

Even if they’ve never watched the original Frankenstein, most horror fans have certainly seen Boris Karloff's likeness as the monster. Or so it might seem. Many lookalike monsters popped up in the numerous sequels. Some were still played by Karloff, some weren’t.

Here are nine different iterations of Frankenstein's Monster from classic horror films. Can you find the one played by Boris Karloff?

Got it on the first try. Karloff famously took out his dentures to give the monster sunken cheeks because he thought it looks more corpse-like. That's the one quality that none of the other actors have.

You picked Boris Karloff! Correct!

Even though I was not going to get this wrong since BK is so distinct as the monster and was often replicated but never duplicated, the monster just above him is a very good likeness. I had to look twice.

Friday Movie Quiz

This movie marks the beginning of an era. Way before it's time and had a great director to make this into a spectacular cinema masterpiece. Part fiction and non-fiction as to what our past history and future might bring. It's too bad that humans had more on their minds about controlling and holding back others then to prepare for a better life and guide us in the right direction. No matter. This movie helps us realize there may be something better to look forward to. Onward per say. The actors are not well known (except near the end) and movie is more a factor then whom might be playing a part. The music and picturesque scenes are one to behold. A not so nice character comes into play and one wonders where that might lead to. A movie that most will never forget and wish to watch it again. After watching one wonders what meaning does this put into our minds.

So who didn't move their booty some during this below........hands on hips and moving, hands outward now, yes gotta move on.....To Funky Town...pointing fingers ....oh yeah. Well I did. Fun (ky) too.
.

I am telling you all right now! Do not! Do not open this door. No matter what!
.

I am also showing a surprise movie along with our movie quiz one. It is a 2016 movie of Animation, Adventure, Comedy. Don't miss either one.
