"One of the sad things is that Forry's collection of artifacts could not have stayed together in a museum.  I know he wanted that but funding was a big problem.  He used to be at the Monster Bash Conference every year until his last…"

"Thanks, and you are quite welcome. That red cut signature was a purchase before I was really online, and when I was literally a brand new collector. I always loved Bela Lugosi - my father met Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff at a theater in NY one day…"

"Here is Bela in what appears ballpoint. This was collector Forrest J. Ackermans copy of Stoker Dracula. I saw Uncle Forry on one of his later birthdays, we chatted, I mentioned my Lugosi film, and then he let me try on…"

"Hi Areana, You are very welcome. There is a reason I am so careful with Lugosi signatures. It is red, and can be seen earlier on page 1! ;) Best wishes,                  Eric"

"Hello, I'm not really sure if it was in person or mailed in. The 3 people in my family who knew about the autograph have since passed. It's one of the reasons I came here to see others opinions on it. I wish I had more information. My…"

"Now looking at the handwriting alongside several letters and postcards 1940-1955, with more examples and more context, I believe this signed photo might well be "likely genuine" (slight reservation/hesitation still). I'd want to see…"

"I don't know if that is going to be knowable. I see that, Joe - I also see some curves where one might expect more angularity, and angularity where one might expect more smoothness.  Here is a letter to his last wife Hope, written right…"
