Today is Bela Lugosi's 130th Birthday.
Born Béla Ferenc Dezső Blaskó in Hungary, Lugosi arrived in America in the early 1920s. By 1927 he was cast as Count Dracula in a Broadway show.
Most famous for his role as Dracula in the 1931 film, Lugosi found himself typecast and caught in a strange whirlwind of the Hollywood system which kept him in spook pictures, more or less, his entire career.
It's the Halloween season. Go out and get yourself a copy of Dracula if you've never seen the original movie. He's pretty darn good.
