Lupita Tovar has passed away at the age of 106. May she rest in peace. If you don’t recognize the name, she played the character of Eva in Dracula (1931)’s Spanish version. It was filmed at night on the same sets as the English language version. I always preferred her version of Eva/Mina over the English version’s. She was also in the Spanish language remake of The Cat and the Canary, which I have never seen.
I will be rewatching the Spanish version of Dracula (1931) tonight in her honor. I had planned to watch it anyway, so this is a good excuse for it. The DVD has a quick bit with her in The Road To Dracula, too.
Tony Neyman has also passed away, at the age of 80. May he rest in peace. MST3K fans and bad movie fans will remember him as the Master in Manos: The Hands of Fate. It’s the 50th anniversary of Manos this year, and Neyman reprised his role for the upcoming follow-up film Manos Returns prior to his death.
