This Is Your Life - Boris Karloff

This Is Your Life episode was aired in 1957. From Wapedia:
Boris Karloff (23 November 1887 - 2 February 1969), whose real name was William Henry Pratt, was an English actor who emigrated to Canada in the 1910s. Karloff performed in a variety of contexts throughout his career, but is best remembered for his roles in horror films and his portrayal of Frankenstein's monster in the 1931 film Frankenstein, 1935 film Bride of Frankenstein, and 1939 film Son of Frankenstein. His popularity following Frankenstein in the early 1930s was such that for a brief time he was billed simply as "Karloff" or, on some movie posters, "Karloff the Uncanny".
