For some reason when I saw that I immediately thought of Béla Lugosi as a farmer.

...I'll post some more Lugosinia later...cuz I want to give others a chance-or I'll turn this into a loooong scrolling post! And who wants to read long posts? I'll break it up...and spare you the eye strain.  Wink
This is why I love y'man. 

I watched most of NINOTCHKA again last night, and I always get a thrill seeing LUGOSI's very small, but as always TERRIFIC, part...

Of course, Bela was fantastic adding entertainment value even to the cheesiest of movies...Naturally there's the classic Dracula appearances but he was also terrific in White Zombie. A movie not mentioned as much I really liked him in was The Dark Eyes of London although it was fully convincing with its final revelation. He even made stuff like Bowery At Midnight, The Ape Man, Mother Riley Meets the Vampire and One Body Too Many surprisingly entertaining at least when he was on screen.

He was always excellent in his roles.  He brought a certain zealotry to his roles that embodied the characters very well.  You believe him in parts as mad scientist, vampire, zombie master, and others.  He also has a presence that gives movies an offbeat charm.  He did well in many parts but unfortunate he was never able to really get much further.  He could have done more but seemed held into certain roles and typecast.  While excellent for those roles, it would have been nice to see him stretch out of those roles.  :( Never the less he was the perfect embodiment of the roles he did take on.

I was reading this article yesterday and right in the middle of it, I got a knock on the door.  It was the mailman delivering the Dracula figure I'd ordered and been waiting for. 

I thought that was a clever enough coincidence to mention.

I loved him as the hero in the serial The Return of Chandu. He plays a magician who has mastered the Secrets of the East and uses his powers to save an Egyptian princess who has been targeted for human sacrafice by the mysterious Cult of Ubastis. This is good stuff. It's one of my favorite serials.

First, I'd love to give kudos to RC, for knowing his stuff so well and having great taste!

Do I like Bela? Well, enough to name my child after him. Enough said... hahaha

When it really comes down to it-ask someone to inmatate Dracula-do the do Christopher Lee? Or John Carradine? Both actors portrayed the role more than Lugosi.
No.
They do Lugosi,
Bela is DRACULA.

Damn right! Although, Christopher Lee did it well. And everytime he played Dracula he always wore a silver thing on his costume as a tribute to Legosi which is cool and classy.
