Bela Lugosi was Buried in his Dracula Costume

Lugosi was buried wearing one of the Dracula stage play costumes, per the request of his son and 4th wife in the Holy Cross Cemetery -- Cluver City, California. His only child was born when Lugosi was 58 or 59 years old.

I think it's great that his final remembrance was Beloved Father with no mention of his career on the grave marker.

Neat little piece, Rosemary. I like the way Bela did his Dracula bit at the end to scare her away. :) Happy Halloween!!!
