Bela Lugosi

Being alive isn't the same as being undead

There are historical examples of Mandela Effect-type events recorded way before even the internet existed. Bela Lugosi, famous for his Dracula role, was actually not considered for his role in Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein because the studio thought he was dead.

Also, as his career sadly faded and no-one had heard of him for a few years before going into hospital, when he came out announcing he was to star in a new film, many people were surprised because they thought he was already dead.

Could this have been the inspiration behind the Bauhaus track?

He finally was buried in 1956 in his beloved Dracula cape, to rest finally in peace. Or was he?
