* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Though he almost exclusively played villain parts, his co-stars almost all agree that, despite his drug addiction and occasional diva behavior, Lugosi was a pleasant, sensitive man and a consumate professional.

* HeReallyCanAct: Even discounting ''Film/{{Dracula 1931}}'', his performances in ''Film/SonOfFrankenstein'' and ''Film/TheBlackCat'' (among others) are proof that he really did have great talent.



* IAmNotSpock: Subverted, as with Leonard Nimoy himself. Lugosi may have resented how thoroughly he would end up type-cast, but he was always rather fond of the role of Dracula and proud of making such an indelible mark on popular culture.

'''Bela Lugosi''' (October 20, 1882 -- August 16, 1956; born ''Béla Ferenc Dezső Blaskó'') was a Hungarian-born stage and screen actor mostly known for his work in horror movies, in particular the title role in the [[Film/{{Dracula 1931}} 1931 version]] of ''Literature/{{Dracula}}''. Following this film's success, he suffered severely from type-casting and the limitations of his heavy native accent, and spent the vast bulk of his career eking out a living in various low-budget productions, culminating (if that is the word) in his work with director Creator/EdWood.

Also rather well known for being [[Music/{{Bauhaus}} dead]]. It wasn't his idea, but he was buried in Dracula costume. A persistent urban myth holds that Creator/PeterLorre, joked at Lugosi's funeral that they should drive a stake through his heart just in case. In fact, Peter Lorre wasn't even at Lugosi's funeral.
