Friday's Fright Film Fact

Bela Lugosi was offered the role of Dracula in House of Frankenstein (1944) but the film was dependent upon Boris Karloff being released from the stage tour of "Arsenic and Old Lace". Shooting was delayed, and John Carradine was cast instead of Lugosi, who had a prior engagement: ironically, playing Karloff's "Jonathan Brewster" role in another touring company of "Arsenic and Old Lace."
