Trivia / Bela Lugosi

  • Creator Backlash: Lugosi and Dracula. In his own words, Dracula ended up being both "a curse and a blessing".
  • I Am Not Dracula
  • Type Casting: The posterboy of the trope, sadly.
    • Lugosi before Dracula had been a romantic lead in European, mostly Hungarian, films during the Silent Era. The only time he managed to get such a role in the United States was in Ninotchka.
    • Playing Against Type - Lugosi played the title hero in the serial "The Return of Chandu" (A sequel to the serial where Lugosi played Chandu's nemesis.).
