Happy Birthday, Béla Lugosi

His was quite a career - officer in the Austro-Hungarian army wounded on the Russian front, forced to flee the Hungarian Revolution on 1919, worked his passage to New Orleans as crew on a tramp steamer, Broadway actor, sudden great film success, typecast by his accent, drug addiction, comeback with Ed Wood and Plan 9 From Outer Space. That's some run.

Bela Lugosi is amazing in White Zombie.

Some people are just made for good roles...like Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown in Back to the Future.
