I have become a massive Karloff fan, and it mostly started with this unaired TV series called The Veil. I know he was one of our great treasures as an actor, but I had no idea of the mystique and wonder he could create with voice, gesture and personality.
The Veil was an American television series produced in 1958 by Hal Roach Studios, with a spooky and suspenseful theme. Most episodes were based upon real-life reports of supernatural happenings and the unexplained.
Due to troubles with the studio, the series as never aired is today hailed by critics as “the greatest television series never seen”.
In the 1990s ten episodes were released to the public for the very first time, and were released later on DVD by Something Weird Video.
