Carla Laemmle the last surviving castmember of 1925's THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA and 1931's DRACULA turned 103 last weekend!


Over the weekend (on October 20th), Hollywood starlet Carla Laemmle turned 103. 103! How awesome is that? Carla Laemmle holds a special place in the hearts of the gang here at Famous Monsters, and undoubtedly does for any longtime horror fan. Laemmle is the last surviving cast member of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA way back in 1925, as a prima ballerina. She also appeared as a coach passenger in DRACULA (1931) and in other small roles throughout the 1930s. She left an indelible imprint on Hollywood and horror forever as the epitome of the Hollywood dream girl. In 2001, she briefly returned to the limelight as a vampire in THE VAMPIRE HUNTER’S CLUB...



Gimmie that old time religion!
