BORIS KARLOFF AT WARNER BROS. 1935-1939 by Greg Mank. For years, film history has basically smiled on the five star vehicles Karloff made for the brothers Warner. The Walking Dead is one of Karloff's most moving horror triumphs, and West of Shanghai, The Invisible Menace, Devil's Island, and British Intelligence---whatever their B picture eccentricities---all provide top billing showcases for the star's versatility. Yet coverage has never fully focused on what happened behind the scenes of Karloff's "Warners" Five," until now!
