His smouldering good looks, exotic accent and otherworldly charisma made Bela Lugosi a unique presence on stage and screen alike. This December, Classic Monsters present Bela Lugosi: Hollywood’s Prince of Darkness, a stunning 84-page publication paying tribute to the remarkable life and work of a true horror cinema great.
Though best known in popular culture for his eerie portrayal of the titular vampire in Dracula (1931), Lugosi had far more tricks up his sleeve. As the likes of broken-necked Ygor in Son of Frankenstein (1939) and nefarious Dr Lorenz in The Corpse Vanishes (1942), he displayed a gift for playing villains, but roles such as that of Vitus Werdegast in 1934’s The Black Cat showed an affecting subtlety and nobility too.
Presented in beautiful full colour, our Bela Lugosi book is more than a biography. Authors Nige Burton and Jamie Jones explore the nuances of his many performances as well as the impact he made on the wider world of horror culture. Lavishly illustrated throughout with stills, publicity shots and posters, this is the ideal companion to your favourite Lugosi movies, and pays respectful tribute to a man whose name is forever linked with the world of monsters, but whose legacy is a far wider one.
Remember, the first 250 copies of Bela Lugosi: Hollywood’s Prince of Darkness are signed by both authors and come with a FREE Bela Lugosi art print and postcard set – click here to view the special edition!
