31 Days of Halloween - Day 20 - Spooky Bonus
Today is horror icon, Bela Lugosi's birthday. He was born in Lugos, Austria-Hungary in 1882. Now remembered most for his troubled career and the vast number of low quality movies he starred in, his appearance on the screen was always a welcome sight , even in many of these clunkers like "Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla" (1952). Early in his career he starred in some truly memorable movies such as "White Zombie"(1932), "The Black Cat" (1934), "Island of Lost Souls"(1932), and "Son of Frankenstein" (1939), not to mention his defining role as "Dracula" (1931).
Celebrate his birthday by watching one of his movies tonight.
