** No he didn't. His first few scenes in the original ''Plan Nine'' where he has lines it's obvious his accent (although somewhat garbled) is till there.

Added DiffLines:

* ArcWords: "Gives/gave me the willies"- Vampira says it to describe Bela when presenting ''Dracula,'' and later a nurse tells Bela this (not realizing who he is) when [[spoiler: he commits himself for drug addiction.]]

* FatIdiot: Although the real-life Tor Johnson may not have been similar to the lumbering mooks he played in Wood's movies, this film portrays him as particularly dimwitted. (In fact, Johnson was already an accomplished bit actor, and had lost his Swedish accent long ago.)

* AdaptedOut: The movie makes no mention of Alex Gordon, who co-wrote ''Film/BrideOfTheMonster'' with Wood. Nor does it mention ''Film/{{Jailbait}}'', a thriller also co-written with Gordon that Wood made between ''Film/GlenOrGlenda'' and ''Bride of the Monster'' and was also the film debut of the late Steve Reeves, the ruggedly handsome champion bodybuilder who went on to become a B-movie cult icon thanks to his portrayal of the mythical demigod hero Hercules in ''Hercules'' and ''Hercules Unchained'' (which helped kick off the sword and sandal boom in Italy in the late 50s and early 60s). Wood's first wife, Norma [=McCarty=] (who he was actually married to during filming of ''Plan 9 from Outer Space'') did appear in earlier drafts of the script, but her subplot was cut from the final version.

* ItllNeverCatchOn: The Baptist producers suggest that since graverobbing is immoral, he should change the name of the film to ''Plan 9 From Outer Space''. Wood's response? "That's ridiculous."[[note]]Obviously, he changes his mind on the subject.[[/note]]

** Lugosi was very successful under Wood in another arena that wasn't shown in the film: Wood produced a popular Vegas stage show called ''[[https://beladraculalugosi.wordpress.com/1954-the-bela-lugosi-revue/ The Bela Lugosi Revue]]''. It had a scheduled limited run of 8 weeks; Lugosi [[{{Determinator}} doggedly]] worked three shows a day. Unfortunately, the Revue's true intention -- to get Bela more film roles -- didn't work out.
