The Count and the Queen

On his way to Hollywood, Bela Lugosi returned from Europe on this day in 1939 aboard the RMS Queen Mary. Ninotchka was set to be released later in the year, in which he starred alongside Greta Garbo and Melvyn Douglas. 

While in Europe, Mr. Lugosi visited Transylvania in order to drink in the local color and get a taste of its medieval beauty. 

(Not really).
