    Bela Lugosi Cummerbund and Photos. This elegant pocketed cummerbund was worn by Bela Lugosi opposite Walter Oland in the Charlie Chan thriller The Black Camel, a borderline lost film that has not been included in syndication packages containing other Fox-produced Charlie Chan films and never made available on home video. The label sewn into the cummerbund bears the name of the hotel where the cast and crew stayed while filming the movie in Hawaii; it is still in business. It is in Excellent condition marred only by two missing buttons. Also included are four b&w 8" x 10" photos from the feature in Excellent condition with very light wear. Accompanied by LOA from Richard Sheffield, close friend to Bela Lugosi.
