Bela Lugos's dead. Get over it.
PULL the stringk!..DANCE to that!....which one is created for...
Bela Lugosi will never die! Bela - Saxophone God!
I love the stories of how, when he was flush and living in a mansion below the Hollywoodland sign, he'd bring whole restaurants full of Hungarians home and party into the night, dancing and holding court. He was very good to immigrant Angelenos, but paid a price in being ostracized (or maybe self-banished would be more accurate) in the industry, keeping to himself when he should have been out there schmoozing. Karloff did the same thing, albeit with British emigres, but the lack of a language barrier permitted more back and forth between Karloff's set and the natives.It's sad to think of how these men fared in later life. Lugosi in poverty and addiction, Peter Lorre living alone in a crap flat on Hollywood Boulevard and Karloff, the luckiest, most successful of them all, broken physically but soldiering on through one bad film after another.
I have pictures of Lugosi in rehab too but who wants to see that? I mean, he's gaunt and in a gown and looks depressed. It is very sad indeed that such great and iconic actors could be so ignored and exploited in their own lifetime.
Bela bela BELA!Bela thinks hes Fred MacMurray with that saxaphone..Too bad Bela didn't hang on a few more years to see the big revival for Uni-monsters in the late 50s and 60s..Altho i don't think it did much for Karloff personally...nor Chaney jr.
Look at that guy behind Lugosi! He's about to start cracking up at Lugosi's antics! He can barely hold it together!!PS - way to bring the room down, Arbogast.
The guy on the drums is all like, "Oh no he didn't!" Like, if they had cell phones back then, he'd totally be texting, "LMAO! BeLA air-saxing! LOL!" Only more things would be misspelled and he'd write "fuck" a lot.
Bela's got him a cigar going down there.I'm not a smoker,but i like a good cigar..and myself wouldn't give one up..even for some SAX!
