Bela Lugosi and his wife, along with a “host of motion picture stars,” attended the gala opening of the California Pacific International Exposition in Balboa Park, San Diego. Among the exhibits and entertainments at the exposition was the Hollywood Motion Picture Hall of Fame, where Lugosi “filmed” a scene with unidentified actors before spectators. A Universal Studios newsreel team captured the event on film
