“`The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures is currently under construction in Los Angeles for their expected grand opening sometime in early 2020. They just acquired the actual cape that Bela Lugosi wore in director Tod Browning’s 1931 horror classic, Dracula.

“`Lugosi kept the cape up until the day he died. Bela was buried in a cape that he wore for the Dracula stage production. The artifact is part of the legendary movie items that will comprise their costume collection. It was donated by the actor’s son Bela G. Lugosi.

“`Jack Nicholson’s red jacket from The Shining has also been acquired by the film museum, along with the outfit worn by Kathy Bates in another Stephen King adaptation, Misery.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
