According to Vincent Price, when he and Peter Lorre went to view Bela Lugosi's body at Lugosi's funeral, Lorre, upon seeing Lugosi dressed in his famous Dracula cape, quipped, "Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart just in case?"
Bela Lugosi “Dracula” ring was originally created in 1944 for Universal’s House of Frankenstein and worn by John Carradine in the role of the Count. Carradine again wore the ring in House of Dracula (1945). Three years later Bela Lugosi wore the ring when Universal signed Lugosi to reprise his role as Dracula in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948).

Dracula. I was reading an article about Gary Oldman and it said how when he played a part you forgot about who Gary was, unlike someone like Tom Cruise who you never forget it is Tom playing someone. Gary is the person he plays and you lose yourself in that portrayal. I think Gary is an underrated actor
