    Description

    Bela Lugosi Signed Photo Inscribed to Evan Hoskins, Dated 1935. A strikingly brooding 8" x 10" study of Bela Lugosi, in profile, hands clenched, gaze turbulent, signed in fountain ink "To Evan Hoskins in remembrance Bela Lugosi Nov. 1935." This was the apex of Lugosi's popularity; in 1935, he had starred in such classic melodramas as Mark of the Vampire and The Raven, traveled to England for Mystery of Marie Celeste and, at the time he signed this picture, had just completed Universal's The Invisible Ray with Boris Karloff. Hoskins was a Hollywood publicist whose work on Bela's behalf later included arranging the famous "hypnosis stunt" for Black Friday (1940), when Lugosi pretended to be hypnotized while performing his death scene. In Excellent condition. From the Marian Marsh Archives. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
