BELA LUGOSI DOES FAINTING THIS TIME
Hollywood, Nov. 6 (INS) – In movie theaters of the country, numerous feminine fans were reported to have fainted when they saw the Frankenstein monster upon the screen.
Yesterday, in Hollywood, the tables were turned.
Bela Lugosi, the third actor to portray filmdom’s best known horror character, lost consciousness while strapped to a surgical table during the shooting of a scene from Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man.
According to doctors, the star was a victim of his makeup, which takes four hours to put on, and which is painful in the wearer.
After being revived, Lugosi was sent home to bed.
