Bela Lugosi

I recently purchased "The Bela Lugosi Box" and have started watching the films. I own about 30 of his films and this set has 15 of them. Lugosi has been revered as a good actor, but I don't know. If you gave him better films, he would still come off as sort of campy. Even his best known film "Dracula" from 1931 has its campy moments.

Don't get me wrong. I like the guy. Why would I buy a box set of his films if I didn't? It's just for acting chops Boris Karloff and Vincent Price have better skills. Even Christopher Lee is better.

Anyway, this set is fun for quite a few laughs and it has three of those dreaded Ed Wood films which I think are great in their campiness, so watch and enjoy or bevare!!
