Hungarian Ghoulish

Baleful Béla is back in the cloak,
Tie and tails, it's a black, formal yoke
And, in fact, laid to rest
As Count Drac he'll be dressed
But impalement would smack of baroque.

David Cairns

Actor Béla Lugosi was buried in his Dracula get-up. Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (Charles Barton; 1948) marked his return to the role he'd made famous in Dracula (1931).
