Bela Lugosi – memento mori, post mortem

vintage post mortem photography skull illusion bela lugosi

How have I never previously seen a post mortem photograph of Bela Lugosi?

This quote from Lugosi’s wife Hope is so sad:

 “He was terrified of death. Towards the end he was very weary, but he was still afraid of death. Three nights before he died he was sitting on the edge of the bed. I asked him if he were still afraid to die. He told me that he was. I did my best to comfort him, but you might as well save your breath with people like that. They’re still going to be afraid of death.”
