In the history of the movies, thousands of men, women, children, and even animals have tried to find success as a movie star. They were drawn from theater, opera, sports, and every type of entertainment venue, and some even came from out of nowhere. They took valiant stabs at entrancing audiences with their faces, personalities, or peculiarities. A precious few achieved greater popularity than anyone could have ever dreamed, but others vanished beneath the sands of time along with the films they so lovingly made. They gave us their most audacious efforts, but they did not find any lasting success, or having enjoyed a brief blush with triumph, they returned home to their true metiers. Some simply never found a second chance. This book celebrates the memorable attempts of ten who tried to be a movie star.

When he died he feared he had been forgotten... …He was dead wrong! Bela Lugosi is considered one of the greatest actors of the twentieth-century... but you'd never know it based upon the way he was treated by the Hollywood executives he worked for. Shut out, ignored, and hideously underpaid, he could have easily given up, walked away from show business, and no one would have blamed him for doing so.
But he didn't. Now a body of his work exists that is celebrated decades after his death... because he worked hard and never gave up. Bela Lugosi persevered in the face of tremendous adversity. Can Bela's story inspire you to keep going in your quest to make the world a better place? In Reign of the Vampire: A Tribute to the Perseverance of Bela Lugosi, Leo Wiltshire (M.
A. in Organizational Leadership) examines the struggles and triumphs of Lugosi's life in order to flesh out one of the most inspirational tales of determination ever told.
