DRACULA THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS
BELA LUGOSI (1882-1956) as DRACULA.
This is a life mask originally cast from the face of Bela Lugosi and Enhanced
to be Dracula. The hypnotic stare has been eerily captured by artist Erick
Erickson. The costume and hair have
been added to create a very powerful presentation.
Bela Lugosi came from Hungary in 1921. In 1927 he stared in Dracula on
the Broadway stage. He took his role to Hollywood in 1931. He made a career
playing the role of the Prince of Darkness for the rest of his life. The
cast for this mask was taken for the final special effects scene for the
1943 Columbia Pictures presentation Return
of the Vampire. They needed to create a wax
face of Lugosi so that after he had a steak driven through his heart ,the
sun light got him and melted his face. It's a great scene and you can see
his eyeball as his face melts away. Bela Lugosi was 61 when the cast was
taken from his face. It has been enhanced and restored to accurately depict
the scene from the film.The ears and hair have been replaced.
