Friday's Fright Film Fact

Universal’s publicity department circulated a story claiming that Boris Karloff wore a 50 pound bulletproof vest and that real shots were fired at him by a marksman in the final scene of  The Raven (1935) to add realism. The shot allegedly knocked Karloff to the ground and he suffered a large bruise caused by the bullet.
