Seeing Stars

Bela Lugosi  at the Sunday Pictorial Film Garden Party

Bela Lugosi was interviewed by Brian Johnston at the Sunday Pictorial Film Garden Party at Morden Park in Surrey on the final day of Dracula’s run at the Empire Theatre in Shepherd’s Bush, London. The event, which also featured Burt Lancaster and Bette Davis, was captured on film in a British Pathe newsreel entitled “Seeing Stars.” The footage showed a relaxed Lugosi smoking one of his trademark cigars.
