Fans of the late legendary Horror and Sci-fi icon Forrest J (Forry) Ackerman will have a chance to catch a glimpse at some of his most treasured items, as Profiles in History joins American Cinematheque at the Egyptian Theatre in their tribute to Ackerman on Sunday, March 8, 2009. Several major items will be on display during the tribute’s opening reception, 3:00pm-4:00pm including the Dracula ring worn by Bela Lugosi as Count Dracula; Lugosi’s robe from The Raven; a cape made for Lugosi in 1932 and used many times for his stage portrayal of Dracula as well as in Lugosi’s performance in Plan 9 from Outer Space; a first edition of the book, Dracula signed by Bram Stoker and inscribed by Bela Lugosi to Forry Ackerman (also signed by a host of other Dracula-related personalities)

    Kreskin, your piece dedicated to Forry Ackerman in Monsters & Critics was very touching. He was a fine man and a great inspiration to many kids of all ages.
