Bela Lugosi and Alex Trebek

Alex Trebek often imitates Bela Lugosi’s Dracula on Jeopardy. He even used a Lugosi voice to say both Frankenstein and Dracula on the December 8th show, when they came up as wrong answers in Final Jeopardy.

Trebek needs to watch “The Bride of Frankenstein” again. Here’s the famous “Smoke Good” scene where Boris Karloff has a few things to say as the Frankenstein Monster

Trebek doesn’t really do a bad Dracula, although Bela Lugosi was Hungarian and that was pretty much the normal way he spoke. Here he is in an interview after filming “Vampire Over London”, also known as “Old Mother Riley Meets the Vampire.” (The whole movie is on youtube)

Bela said Dracula never ended for him. It never ends for Trebek either.
