| beautiful, lovely tribute to a great star
Though it's pretty obvious that Gary Don Rhodes is VERY biased towards his subject, viewing "Lugosi: Hollywood's Dracula" is still the best experience I've ever had watching a movie star bio. Lugosi was a magnificent actor in his day. In his native Hungary he was a highly respected Shakesperian actor. In the States, a combination of extreme typecasting, poor business judgement, less than perfect English & personal problems caused his career to stagnate & nosedive in his later life.

But he was still a great actor, with a riveting, intoxicating screen presence. Gary Don Rhodes gives him the respect & recognition he so richly deserves. Interviews with co-stars & relatives of Lugosi give great insight into who he was both as a man and an actor. Stills & clips from early stage & screen roles show the magnitude and magnificence of his range. "Lugosi: Hollywood's Dracula" is a lovely tribute that fans of the actor must see. It is a long overdue valentine to a great star who should have been respected by Hollywood when he was alive. Great job, Mr. Rhodes.
