"Rumour has it that before dying, on 16 August 1956, Bela Lugosi (a pseudonym for Béla Blaskó) pronounced the following words: "I am Count Dracula, I am king of the vampires, I am immortal", and the last visitor who had arrived to pay tribute to his mortal remains saw a giant black bat outside the window. But in all probability, these are just some of the legends born from the indissoluble link between the actor and his most famous role."
"Béla Ferenc Dezső Blaskó was born in Hungary in 1882 and became a naturalized United States citizen in 1931, the year in which he succeeded in obtaining the part of Count Dracula in the like-named film directed by Tod Browning that would bring him unprecedented fame. Still today the movie is considered a cinema classic. His elegant and hypnotic performance, and his Mitteleuropean accent, gave his Count Dracula an unforgettable fascination."
"That is how Bela Lugosi became forever a timeless icon, recalling the golden years of Hollywood cinema, a period still loved by many fans all over the world. After careful research into every detail and dozens of original photographs provided by Lugosi Enterprises, we worked at length on sculpting this statuette. It is based on an intricate combination of original frames, stage shots, and the quest for the perfect mood and atmosphere evoked by the ideal setting for the film and the Dracula legend."
"The vampire and his female victim embody the spirit of the Victorian age, the magic of the tale, the masterly sculptural quality of a statuette of rare elegance that also evokes profound magic and mystery. Even the tiniest details help express a world steeped in supernatural enigmas, historical epochs and legends passed down over the centuries. This Dracula is the essence of every vision and dream that cinema and imagination have been capable of imparting to us all."
