Of all the actors I’ve been featuring in the Icons of Horror column this month, easily the most tragic case is that of Hungarian-born actor Bela Lugosi, who was arguably the very first of the major horror stars of the talkie era. He experienced an explosion of amazing roles in a very short and concerted period of time, then was mainly relegated to supporting roles or B-picture leads where he was cast for name recognition only.

Review from customers:
- His last scene, smelling a rose, is one of the most amazing performances ever.
- Nothing better than the old campy scary movies!
- He was great as Karloff’s sidekick.
