Words to keep
"Superstition is the religion of feeble minds." —Edmund Burke (Reflections on the Revolution in France)
Pop culture eternal
The movie actor Bela Lugosi is best known for his performance as Count Dracula in the 1931 gothic horror classic Dracula. He played Dracula or Dracula-like characters in other movies, as well. In some of the Frankenstein movies of the same era, he played the hermit Igor. His characters were usually vampires or other sinister villains, but not always. In the low-budget mystery movie Murder by Television (1935), he appears in a dual role including the hero, an undercover government agent. The story centers on the murder of an inventor during a global demonstration of his television technology.
