Unearthed Lugosi film footage
« on: April 22, 2019, 02:52:45 PM »
Has anyone else here seen this? I can't believe there is "new" Lugosi footage out of nowhere! It definitely breaks the myth of him being a frail old man. Wow! I got chills!

That's such great footage, it really does show Bela looking great and strong. The most we've seen of that particular story are a few stills where he looked wizened and frail, which must have been taken upon his entry to "rehab". This footage really brings him back to life.
You knew the job was dangerous when you took it, Fred.

The man is a legend to me. I know he was only human, but ever since I saw Dracula for the first time when I was in second grade, he has loomed larger than life.

I thought I had seen just about every bit of footage of him. Seeing this just made this Monster Kid's heart jump.
