Bela Lugosi Poses for Disney

Bela Lugosi once posed for Walt Disney for the movie "Fantasia."
November 12, 1939
The Walt Disney Company has a long history of using models to help them animate their films. On this day in 1939, actor Bela Lugosi, better known by some as Dracula, modeled for the role of Chernabog in the “Night on Bald Mountain” sequence of the film Fantasia. However, head animator Bill Tytla was unhappy with the results and later had director Wilfred Jackson redo the poses.
