Happy Birthday to one of the greats of the genrea, Bela Lugosi. He would be 136 years old today. Holy Cow. A lot of people, myself included, when they picture a vampire, they picture Bela as Dracula. But he did a lot of other work as well. He played Igor in both Son of Frankenstein and Ghost of Frankenstein and he took a turn as the monster himself in Frankenstein vs. The Wolfman. He went on to play a variety of roles throughout the rest of his life, though he was mostly typecast as a horror villain. Finally he ended his career working with Ed Wood, and died early in the filming of Plan 9 from Outer Space.
So Happy Birthday, Bela. The Horror Genre just wouldn't be the same without you.
