According to real estate publications and records in Los Angeles, the home of old-time horror-movie star Bela Lugosi — purchased by David Copley in mid-2011 — has been sold.

Copley bought it for $2.25 million and it sold in July for $2.6 mllion. However, Copley had put a lot of money into it, including re-slating the roof and starting to build a swimming pool before he died just prior to Thanksgiving in 2012.

Work stopped for awhile after his death, then resumed. Some say the Copley estate may have lost several hundred thousand on the house, considering all that was put into it.

All that money and he couldn't take a penny of it with him...a lesson for us all.

What do you mean? If he is among the undead, he should still be able to use it.

Yankeedoodle: Both Lugosi and David Copley are not among the undead. That is another way of saying that both are deceased. Best, Don Bauder

Don: clearly you do not believe that Count Dracula has solved the riddle of mortality. But the evidence is right there on film!

Yankeedoodle: Yeah, but I have said many times on this blog that I see just a handful of movies every year. I cannot remember having seen Count Dracula. How am I expected to know the guy is immortal? Best, Don Bauder
