What does PTSD stand for?

Post-traumatic stress disorder, brought about by 15 years in that awful prison (and the preceding war).

You obviously do not know how to charm a lady. ūüėČJust joshin'.

Bela has a refined, smoldering quality that women can find exciting. Benicio DelToro has the intensity with none of the elegance-he's more "animal" like young Brando. Bela also has a beautiful body & posture, moving slowly & deliberately showing physical control. His face is pretty symmetrical too. 

Woah-not with THAT make up!

I also find Karloff handsome & while watching the movie last night realized while so different, I like them both equally but for different reasons.

O, I've seen old photos of Lugosi(pre-American film career) in which he did appear to be a rather good looking guy, but not in any movies I've seen him in that TCM ever showed.

Hi, TikiSoo!   Respectfully, that middle picture does not look like Bela.  I used to own a fairly large Lugosi photo collection and thought I knew every nook and cranny of the man, lol.

Not sure who it could be, though.

In his dreams. Stalin had bad skin from childhood diseases, so if it is uncle Joe, it is heavily doctored, which would not be unusual for photos from the Soviet archives. It is also apparently a mug shot. (Too bad they let him go.)

I always felt that legendary TV newsman John Facenda looked like Bela Lugosi. :D

Yea,  those two did look alike.     Facenda and his broadcast were mentioned in the film The Burglar (1957),   with Dan Duryea,  Jayne Mansfield,  and Martha Vickers.

On Svengoolie tomorrow, July 31, 2021:

I don't remember whether I've seen this film, but one good sign is that the music is by Edward J. Kay, who was nominated for an Oscar for his great score for King of the Zombies (1941). Kay also produced Creation of the Humanoids. Although the date for the film is generally given as 1962, it was probably made in 1960.

Don't know a single actor in the ad! This must really be bad!

But it's a Genie Production, released by Emerson Film Enterprises!

Somebody ponied up the money for Eastman Color, though, which gets top billing over any of the actors.

Well, what did THEY care?  They likely weren't watching the flick from the backseat anyway.  ;)

The only name I recognize in the credits is the amusingly named Dudley Manlove, who was in Plan 9.

But here's something about the film that I found online:

‚ÄúNo other effort from the golden age of spacesuit melodrama entranced the 60s avant-garde as deeply as Wesley Barry‚Äôs¬†The Creation of the Humanoids, a deadpan talkie set after worldwide nuclear war, in which a¬†shrinking population of radiation-infected humans rely on an army of android servants to maintain their idyllic lifestyle. Andy Warhol called it his favorite movie; Mike Kuchar parodied it in his robots-in-love featurette¬†Sins of the Fleshapoids; Susan Sontag used it to explore the theme of dehumanization in her essay ‚ÄúThe Imagination of Disaster;‚ÄĚ and Robert Smithson dubbed it one of the ‚Äėlandmarks of Sci-fic.'‚ÄĚ

You don't know the strapping hunk of man Don Megowan?

He starred in two of my favorite 50's svengoolie items - The Werewolf (shown here on TCM not too long ago) and the underrated chapter The Creature Walks Among Us (the best of the two "Creature" sequels).

Here's a piece about Andy Warhol and his favorite film, Creation of the Humanoids:

http://www.rebeatmag.com/fantasia-obscura-story-human-replication-andy-warhols-favorite-film/

"The film had one strong champion, Andy Warhol. The film was his favorite, as stated in a review of one of his openings in The Village Voice from December 3, 1964, and it’s easy to see why: the themes of creation and replication, the inability to divide the natural from the crafted, certainly appealed to his aesthetic, and guided his vision through most of his artistic career. Warhol could take the themes raised in the film and present them in a way that would resonate with the viewer. In his hands, how he tackled the questions raised by The Creation of the Humanoids became art."

LOL! i did see the Werewolf, but the name didn't register. I'll look to see if he looks familiar.
