Halloween Hottie

Give it up for the man who inspired St. Peter’s look, and all subsequent Goth Bois to follow….

Conrad Veidt in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari!

Yes, this look was down pat in 1919, and hasn’t really ever been improved upon since then.  St. Peter does it just as good, but no one has rocked this look better than Conrad.

After Caligari, Conrad went on to Hollywood where he played an endless sucession of sexy Nazis, but he never did anything Gothi again.  (Unless you count The Man Who Laughs, where he helped to create the look that inspired Batman’s “The Joker.”  But that wasn’t hot.)

Thank you Conrad, for this immortal image!  And Happy Halloween!
