Metropolitan State Hospital Interview 

Broadcast date unknown

Metropolitan State Hospital

On August 1, 1955, Bela Lugosi was interviewed as he prepared for his release from the Metropolitan State Hospital at the end of his ninety-day treatment for his addiction to prescription drugs. In the interview, a very healthy-looking and upbeat Lugosi talked frankly about his addiction, alcohol problems and divorce and a future, unrealised, film project, The Ghoul Goes West with Ed Wood. Both edited and unedited prints of the interview survive.
