Dracula & Frankenstein in YOUR Mailbox!

More of the USPS's postcards from the Universal Monsters Stamps.

NAME TRIVIA #1:  Explain the significance of our favorite Dracula's "last" name.

NAME TRIVIA #2:  Give Boris Karloff's birth name.

GIVE UP?  Every Monster Fan should have known!

Question #1:   Lovely Bela hailed from the town of Lugos, in Hungary.  His birth name was Bela Blasko (minus a couple of middle names).

Question #2:  "Starring William Henry Pratt" just doesn't have the same cachet as "Starring Boris Karloff," does it?

See you tomorrow with another piece of deathless prose that should have died long ago!
