Lugosi as Count Dracula in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.

Béla Ferenc Dezső Blaskó (October 20, 1882 – August 16, 1956), known professionally as Bela Lugosi, was a Hungarian actor ((naturalized as an American in 1931) best remembered for portraying Count Dracula in Dracula (1931), a role which he reprised in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948). Arguably his second-best known role was as Ygor in Son of Frankenstein (1939) and Ghost of Frankenstein (1942). Having originally rejected the role of Frankenstein's Monster in the 1931 film (in which the monster had no dialogue), he accepted it in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943).
