Best Bela Lugosi Book
« on: August 16, 2014, 09:55:17 PM »

I hear that Gary D Rhodes is the best author on Bela Lugosi and has several books on him.  Which is the the best one that covers his life, birth, films, and death?

Are there any other books that are the best about Lugosi?  I have just finished reading Vincent price biography by his daughter which was fantastic! I am now looking something to read on Lugosi.

Any advice on which one to pick up?

Please give Andi Brooks' and my VAMPIRE OVER LONDON - BELA LUGOSI IN BRITAIN a look (you can read about it on Amazon, eBay, or the cult movies press website). It focuses on Lugosi's 1951 Dracula stage tour, but covers his whole life.
