Happy birthday Bela Lugosi

Happy birthday to one of the greatest horror icons of all time - Béla Lugosi (1882-1956)!

What could I possibly say about Lugosi that has not already been said or written? He had a long and varied acting career, including stage and film. His performance as Dracula has set the standard for all others that followed, and has become a part of our collective horror psyhe. Of course he also starred in many of the classic Universal films, as well as Poverty Row classics, and later the Ed Wood films.

Join me in a toast to Mr. Lugosi! Cheers!


  1. Glasses up to Bela. Very Cool JT!!!

  2. Indeed, I loved him in Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein...
