"Born Béla Ferenc Dezsõ Blaskó in Hungary in 1882, Bela Lugosi created his most renowned role of Count Dracula on stage in 1927. The 1931 movie version brought Lugosi worldwide fame, but also typecast him.
His inability to speak fluent English, a rivalry with Boris Karloff and a regime change at UNIVERSAL all worked against Lugosi. Consigned to small roles in 'B' pictures, he never again enjoyed the success of DRACULA. A severe bout of sciatica led to drug addiction.
By the early 1950's Lugosi was all but forgotten and living in near-poverty. His career revived briefly when Ed Wood located him and urged Lugosi to appear in some low-budget films. After a stint in drug rehab, he died of a heart attack on August 16, 1956 and was buried in one of his stageplay Dracula capes.
The ten titles in BELA LUGOSI: MASTER OF HORROR are all from his 'B' picture days. The most famous one here is WHITE ZOMBIE. There is also a serial that has been recut to movie length (THE PHANTOM CREEPS).
