It's that time of year. again..when the bats come out and the werewolves how – ah wait, no, it's CHRISTMAAS!!!:squee::party:
:iconsantahatplz:
:iconlugosiplz::iconchristmastreeplz: Happy Holidays folks!!!:party: Hoping everyone's having a wonderful time!!:)

Just to add a quick little note...

A refurbishment of the :target: Bela Lugosi Fansite :target: has been taking place over the past few months:meow:

:iconguineapigplz::iconsaysplz:So WHAT'S NEW? To quickly summarise:

- New LOOK. No longer in the 90s/00s, the site has come bounding into the 10s! See the
homepage
- New PHOTOS. The gallery now stands at over 1900 photos! Seriously folks, Béla pics just keep surfacing!!
- ARTWORK section – featuring Béla art from folk here at deviantART and beyond!
- ARTICLES added – time machines aren't around just yet...but we DO have newspapers to give us a unique look at Bela's career as it was seen by the people of the day. PLUS, he did FAR MORE newspaper interviews than recorded ones!! There's even one where he's interviewed with fourth wife Lillian!!
- MOVIE QUOTES page added - “Supernatural perhaps, baloney perhaps not.” - well who's going to argue with THAT!
- FACEBOOK page – so you can find out about new additions to the site! Watch this space! WATCH IT!!!;)

That seems to cover everything...for the time being:)

Take care over the holidays folks, and have a great New Year too!

Yours truly,

:bulletblack: He did: 1.) theatre (minor, supporting and main roles), 2.) silent movies (even with Murnau!), 3.) the talkies: three of them in colour (of which two survive as such). Most of the early movies are reported to be *lost*.

:bulletblack: Statistics from his theatre Dracula, Los Angeles Times, 1928:

a.) Faintings: 110.
b.) Shrieks: 20 per performance.
c.) Husbands summoned to escort wives home: 10 per performance. (What were those wives doing there all alone ... :))

:bulletblack: Self parodied the ''blood thirsty bogeyman'' on many occasions (so did Christopher Lee --> :bulletred: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXA57J…. Might be convenient to ask - why is the great cape so difficult to shake off :furious:. (Minus the fangirls.)

:bulletblack: --- April 20, 1932: Béla Lugosi did a laugh-clown-laugh stunt at the Carthay Circle theatre the other night. He tripped back stage, fell and broke three ribs, but went on with his performance of ''Murdered Alive''. (Oh, the irony!)

:bulletblack: Played all THREE Universal characters: Dracula & The Monster & *A* Werewolf (which bites Talbot).

:bulletblack: ----------- the IMPORTANT one!!! :#1: ˙˙˙˙˙˙ #:blackrose:[www.archive.org/]:blackrose: ˙˙˙˙˙˙ :target: = :star:FREE:star: movies - Internet Archive of old & dis-copyrighted movies, audio and books which you can see or download with no trouble or threat of imprisonment, lol. SUPER STUFF!!! Use it to your :heart:'s desire ...


P.S.: a friendly advice: forget what you saw in ''Ed Wood'' (1994) and read the books :above:. For accurate Edward D. Wood Jr. portrayal see ''The Haunted World of Edward D.Wood Jr.''(1996) - fairly made and with respect towards ALL involved + instructive commentary: :bulletred: www.imdb.com/title/tt0113270/
