"We love... Dracula"

In time for Halloween, icWales has this nice (if somewhat poorly edited/copywritten) homage to vampire movies, Bela Lugosi in particular:

Lugosi was one of Hollywood's most intriguing and tragic early stars. Born B la Ferenc Dezso Blask [sic] in 1882 in Transylvania, he emigrated to the United States in 1921 after serving in the First World War. He became re-involved in the theatre within the Hungarian- American community and was to star in a Dracula play. After the death of silent movie legend Lon Chaney Sr, Lugosi replaced him in Tod Browning's movie version of Dracula.
Nothing new for the hardcore fan, but still a nice piece overall.
