A Close Up with Bela Lugosi

Helen Thompson, the subject of both River of January and River of January: Figure Eight, appeared in Hollywood film, Women of All Nations in 1931.

She’s the girl dancing with the cap in her first scene, then filmed in a close-up with legend, Bela Lugosi, who portrayed some kind of caliph.

Enjoy this vintage clip from the golden age of film.

Gail Chumbley is the author of the two-part memoir, River of January and River of January: Figure Eight.
