Look at the prices for that antique auction — $650 or less for a Remington!

Note that Lugosi plays the Monster. Sad.

For anyone interested, I’d sure recommend the movie Ed Wood. The portrayal of Bela Lugosi in that is heart breaking.

Actually, the best "monster combo" movie is Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, which has all three Universal classic characters in it (Frankenstein's Monster, Dracula, and The Wolf Man.)

It also contain the classic lines:

Larry Talbot: You don't understand. Every night when the moon is full, I turn into a wolf.

Wilbur: You and twenty million other guys.

Believe it or not I just watched that film a few weeks ago with my 7 year old daughter. I had previously introduced her to Abbott and Costello via their “Who’s on First?” routine which she thinks is hilarious even thought I don’t think she fully gets it seeing as she doesnt understand baseball. I thought she’d get a kick out of seeing them interact with monsters. She’s at a good age for it now, when she’s 10 or so she’ll roll her eyes at how old fashioned and fake it all looks but for now she loves it. YouTube is great for getting her to see some of these old films or at least portions of them.

Sad indeed. I read where he turned down the first Frankenstein part because there was no dialogue. Not only this movie, but he was also a silent "Bela" the gypsy in another horror film.

For anyone interested, I’d sure recommend the movie Ed Wood. The portrayal of Bela Lugosi in that is heart breaking.
Being a fan of "Plan 9" and other Grade B horror films, I thorougly enjoyed Johnny Depp's portrayal of Wood, and actually gained some respect for a guy who was often snickered at. That movie showed Wood as the only friend Lugosi had in his final years. I thought it neat that Martin Landau got an Oscar for his portrayal of Lugosi, which was creepily fascinating.
