Heartwarming / Targets

  • Just watching Boris Karloff playing essentially himself in the role of Byron Orlok: a sweet old man upset that the world is getting younger... and scarier...
  • Orlok and Sammy Michaels (played by Peter Bogdanovich himself) bonding in Orlok's hotel room as Michaels still tries to convince Orlok to be in his movie, resulting in both men getting drunk and falling asleep from a hangover.
  • In a meta example, after Karloff did his "Appointment in Samarra'' recital, the film crew all applauded, which made Karloff's wife cry, as it had been so long since Boris had gotten such recognition.
