Santa Bela 3MAKE-UP MASTER DONS SANTA CLAUS RIG, FINALLY FOOLS SON

Not until he donned suit and whiskers of old St. Nick did Bela Lugosi, master of screen make-up, fool his son, Bela, Jr., on whom Lugosi has tested guises for the past year. Bela, Jr., who will be two years old on January 5, 1940, failed to penetrate his father’s disguise as Santa Claus until Lugosi, Sr., voluntarily de-bearded himself. Bela, Jr., who laughed with glee at his father’s grotesque get-up in the recent “Son of Frankenstein,” will soon be confronted with another disguise when his father dons a new make-up for Universal’s forthcoming “Friday the Thirteenth.”
