Bela Lugosi’s Dead

Current obsession: this striking Geza Kende photo of coroners wheeling Bela Lugosi’s body out of his apartment on the day the iconic Dracula actor died in 1956 (click photo to embiggen). Talk about capturing a moment. I found it on a blog called Vampires Over London, which offers a wealth of digital Lugosi ephemera.

    Thanks for highlighting this great photo. Geza Kende was the painter of the striking portrait of Bela in the background. The photographer responsible for the photo is unknown.

    I find this Photo really sad and very odd knowing Bela Lugosi played a vampire it seems sureal that he is underneath that sheet at the same time you know that he won’t be getting up very sad
