Friday's Fright Film Fact

Bela Lugosi was originally contracted to appear in Dracula's Daughter (1936) at a salary of $4,000, but the script in which the character appeared was rejected by Universal. The new script did not involve Dracula, except for a scene with him in his coffin, but Lugosi was paid off, earning $500 more for not appearing in Dracula's Daughter (1936) than he earned for starring in Dracula (1931).
