Glen10k Posted October 15, 2022 Share Posted October 15, 2022 1:4 scale bust of Bela Lugosi as he appeared in the 1932 film 'White Zombie'. Born Béla Ferenc Dezső Blaskó on October 20th 1882 in Hungary, Lugosi was a stage actor before moving into silent movies in 1917. Moving to Germany in 1919 and then onto America where he starred on stage as Dracula in 1927 before moving to Hollywood in 1928. In 1931 he starred as Dracula on the silver screen. Lugosi's performance as Dracula and his thick Hungarian accent led to him being typecast although he starred in a number of horror films over the next decade frequently performing along with Boris Karloff. Due to medical issues Lugosi became addicted to Morphene and Methadone in the early 40's and struggled for work. He died in 1956 aged 73 and was buried in his Dracula costume, Cape and ring. He was married 5 times and had 1 son. Lugosi is finished in grayscale style, done in a mix of acrylics and oils 8 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
