Béla Lugosi Facts
Andy Warhol's 1963 silkscreen The Kiss depicts Bela Lugosi from Dracula about to bite into the neck of co-star Helen Chandler, who played Mina Harker. A copy sold for $798,000 at Christie's in May 2000.

Bela Lugosi was the subject of "Bela Lugosi's Dead," the first single by English rock band Bauhaus. It was released in August 1979 and it is often considered to be the first gothic rock record.

In Tim Burton's 1994 Ed Wood, Bela Lugosi is played by Martin Landau in an interpretation for which Landau received an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
