This is from exactly 1940. Father Clemens and his drama club did "Arsenic and Old Lace" that year. Father Clemens somehow knew Karloff. Karloff was in Detroit with a touring company of "Arsenic" at the time. Father Clemens went to see the show with some CC guys and saw Karloff backstage. Boris then came to CC to see rehearsals. (male and female roles played by CC boys) and pronounced it splendid. "However, you are missing one thing — a squeaker for your window seat." Karloff then supplied the prop for the show (see the 1940 yearbook) Another picture of Karloff with the student on the right has appeared in CC publications. (I think it might also be in that yearbook) I had Father Clemens in 1984 and he was still telling that story 44 years later.
