* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cE1fzfOogo The Atomic Supermen speech]] from ''Film/BrideOfTheMonster''. Only Lugosi could take such a ridiculous speech [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously turn it into a]] TearJerker.
** Not to mention that there were fears that he wouldn't be able to memorize such a long, complicated speech at his age and state of health. Lugosi ordered the crew to put the cue cards away and did the whole thing perfectly in one take, earning a standing ovation from the cast and crew.
* His performance as ''Film/{{Dracula}}.'' Not only is it a great role in itself, but in it he more or less single-handedly gave birth to the image of the vampire in the public mind, made the horror film a viable financial investment in the sound era, ''and'' saved Universal Studios from bankruptcy. So, ''Film/ToKillAMockingbird,'' ''Film/{{Jaws}},'' all those classic Universal horror films, they all owe their existence to Lugosi.
