Carla Laemmle c. 1920’s - (October 20th, 1909 - June 12th, 2014)  R.I.P.
The beautiful niece of producer Carl Laemmle, who made her (uncredited) film debut in The Phantom Of The Opera (1925) as a ballet dancer.  Her book entitled “Growing Up With Monsters” details her times at Universal studios from 1921 to 1937, has a foreword by Ray Bradbury, and is full of wonderful anecdotes, illustrations and photographs which document the era.  Hers is the first voice heard in “Dracula” 1931), in an uncredited role as a bespectaled passenger in the coach which is carrying Renfield to Dracula’s castle.  May she rest in peace, and I hope someone writes a book about this lovely lady, who lived to the age of 104, and truly was there at the beginning of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Boris Karloff was a very sweet, wonderful man, and I just loved him. Immediately, from being on the lot, and taking his hand, I just loved him. I had no fear of him, whatsoever. We seemed to have a rapport together - and it was like magic.
