Three beautiful biographies of classic horror icons, with a saving on cover price and shipping.
Among the many stars of classic horror cinema, the names Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and Lon Chaney Jr loom large. They brought some of our favourite horror characters to life, and we in turn celebrate their careers in a series of stunning full-colour biographies that will give you a new perspective on their legacies. Our classic horror biography trio bundle offers a saving on cover price and shipping; inside you’ll find:
- Bela Lugosi: Hollywood’s Prince of Darkness: From 1931’s Dracula through Murders in the Rue Morgue (1932) to stealing the show as Ygor in Son of Frankenstein (1939) and plentiful stage work, Bela Lugosi gave horror fans a wealth of unforgettable performances. Yet his personal life was not without all manner of injury, difficult and sadness. Explore his story in our vibrant full colour Bela Lugosi biography.
- Boris Karloff: The English Gentleman of Horror: His performances as the Monster in 1931’s Frankenstein and its first two sequels made the mild-mannered English actor the cinematic face of Mary Shelley’s literary creation. However, while horror played a key part in his career, there was much more to his life and career. Our lavish Boris Karloff biography celebrates the enduring power of his life and work.
- Lon Chaney Jr: Heir to the Monster Throne: Stepping out from his father’s shadow, Lon Chaney Jr established his own reputation through compelling performances in movies like Of Mice and Men (1939), The Wolf Man (1941) and Universal’s Inner Sanctum mystery series. Our insightful Lon Chaney Jr biography shows that while fame and happiness did not go hand in hand for him, he remains a fascinating figure in the horror world.
