According to Vincent Price, when he and Peter Lorre went to view Bela Lugosi's body at Lugosi's funeral, Lorre, upon seeing Lugosi dressed in his famous Dracula cape, quipped, "Do you think we should drive a stake through his heart just in case?"
Bela Lugosi as Count Mora in "Mark of the Vampire" (1935) with Carroll Borland as Luna. Very fun. Story's a bit dumb, but they had a lot more special effects budget than in Dracula four years earlier. I think it's much more fun to watch. Hard to find a copy, though. (Thx Johan)
