Poor Bela Lugosi was a morphine addict when Ed Wood got hold of him. He worked cheap, which was all Wood could afford. There was a small bit of footage of him leaving a house. Wood used this, put in a bit about the Lugosi character being hit by a car, and then had his wife's chiropractor play Lugosi in his Dracula drag by keeping the cape up in front of his face. The chiropractor was about a foot taller than Lugosi.
