The Month of Monsters is no laughing matter ...

Just about every film buff knows the stars of the classic line of horror films produced by Universal in the 1920s', 30s' and 40s'. Bela Lugosi, Boris Karloff and Lon Cheney, three names that will forever be remembered in the hearts of movie fans around the world. Yet, one name always seems to omitted from the list. True this mystery actor never played Dracula or Frankenstein's Monster, yet his part in the history of horror is just as important as any actor who ever wore a cape or endured hours wrapped in bandages.

I am of course talking about Conrad Veidt. Still don't know who I'm talking about? Well, I'm certain that you have heard of some of the films he starred in. Veidt would become known for his roles in such films as "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" (1920), "The Thief of Bagdad" (1940), and "Casablanca" (1942). His likeness as Gwynplaine in "The Man Who Laughs" would serve as the inspiration for the comic book supervillain "The Joker."
