Worth Watching for the Interviews

Bela Lugosi: The Forgotten King (1985)

*** (out of 4)

Oh, how time has changed. When this documentary came out it was okay to say Bela Lugosi was "forgotten" but today you could argue that he's one of the most popular horror stars out there. This documentary has a few of its facts wrong and there's no question that there are better ones out there but at the same time this here has a couple things that make it a must see. What made this a must see for me back in the day as a child is that it featured footage from various Lugosi movies that weren't available then. If you wanted to see clips from these movies the only way to do so was by watching a documentary like this. This here is what kept this in my player all through my young years. Today all of these films are easy to get your hands on so the documentary doesn't have that same need it factor. What keeps it entertaining and worth viewing to people of today is that it features actual interviews with those who knew Lugosi or worked with him. Host Forrest J. Ackerman does a fine job and gets to tell some good stories. We also get Carroll Borland talking about working with Lugosi on Dracula and we've also got Ralph Bellamy, John Carradine and Alex Gordon telling some stories. It's these interviews that make the film worth seeing and one wishes that we had more of them. BELA LUGOSI: THE FORGOTTEN KING isn't the greatest documentary out there but fans of the horror legend should enjoy it.
