John Carradine, 1982

I just had to share this great publicity photo of John Carradine from The Secret of NIMH, via Gregory's Shock Theatre. Carradine's all-too-brief scene as the Great Owl is one of my favorite moments from one of my favorite movies. I was 5 when I saw that movie, and his booming voice coupled with that amazing animation made a huge impression on me then. It's never left me.

I always liked him in any part he played. Loved him in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.

I met John Carradine in 1975. His hands were gnarled with arthritis, yet his handwriting when he signed an autograph for me, was beautiful and controlled, looking like calligraphy.
