Nicole: (listening to Warren Zevon's "Werewolves of London") Who's Lon Cheney?
Me: He's an actor from the 1940's who played The Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster, and a lot of other monster-type characters. He had this ongoing feud thing with Bela Lugosi.
Nicole: Who's Bela Lugosi?
Me: He's that guy who played Dracula and then got all caught up in the glamour of the role and never really played anything else. Anyway, he and Lon Cheney had a pretty famous professional rivalry.
Me: Uh…yeah. Just like that.
care to comment?
