Tense, true, dramatic stories about the mysterious, baffling, unexplainable events in our lives.
In 1958, Frank P. Bibas blazed a ghostly trail when he created the anthology TV series The Veil, hosted by "The King of Monsters" himself, Boris Karloff. Its weird tales were reportedly all based on true-life accounts of frightening phenomena. Ten of the planned 39 episodes were shot, all with Karloff as host and as leading characters. Then the Hal Roach Studios was swallowed up by financial quicksand, and The Veil vanished like a spook at sun-up. The episodes ended up not on TV but in warehouse storage. For decades, the fact of their existence was known to practically no one.
This book unVeils all the secrets of the supernatural series and its accounts of ghosts (on land, sea, and air), visions, possession, and reincarnation. Appendices include three Veil scripts, synopses of unproduced scripts, an exhaustive history of Karloff's career as a TV host and rare Karloff photos from the John Antosiewicz Collection. And an Introduction by Boris Karloff.
