Me: Today we'll be talking about John Carradine. What can you tell me about him?
Me: I swear to-
Jay: Okay, okay. John Carradine has a massive list of acting credits, going as far back as 1930.
Me: I was surprised by just how much John Carradine has done! He did a lot of different types of things, too (some quite awful.) Which of his horror films is your favourite?
Jay: It's hard to say. I mean, you've got The Howling, which is up there, and The Sentinel.
Me: And House of the Long Shadows.
Jay: And House of the Long Shadows.
Me: I love that one.
Jay: Well, when you've got John Carradine, Peter Cushing, Christohper Lee, and Vincent Price together in one movie, you can't go wrong. My favourite is probably The Monster Club, though.
Me: Great film. Very clever.
I honestly don't know a lot about John Carradine. What can you tell me?
Jay: Well, he was an artist. There's that. And you were about six when he died.
Me: So... you don't know a lot about him either?
Me: Since neither of us know much about John Carradine, how did he make the cut?
Jay: It's the sheer volume of work he's done. With a career spanning over fifty years, John Carradine cemented his place as a horror icon.
Me: Agreed. Before we wrap things up here today, is there anything else you want to add?
Jay: Just that John Carradine is an underrated actor. People don't talk about him as much as they should.
Me: I guess we're good examples of that. We can't talk too much about that today - we have to start looking at tomorrow's selection. Back to work!
