FAQ: What did Boris Karloff, Peter Lorre, and Vincent Price REALLY say at Béla's funeral? Find out in this…
FILM POSTERS: Original Béla film posters:…
and lobby cards:…

: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:…). 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).

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:
