BELA LUGOSI “HORROR ACTOR” TO WRITE MYSTERIES
Mystery stories are what the public wants, Donald Friede (l.), member of the Covici-Friede publishing firm of New York City, tells Bela Lugosi, film star famous for his delineation of horror roles. Friede, on a literary scouting trip to Hollywood, has signed Lugosi for a mystery-horror yarn which is expected to keep readers a-quiver when it appears in the near future. This photo shows them perusing Lugosi’s preliminary manuscript.
