Personal Quotes
[on Bela Lugosi] Bela . . . once told me that he wanted me in all his pictures. And he gave [producer] Sam Katzman instructions to put me in them. Lugosi told me, "Angelo, you are my greatest free advertisement. When they see you, they've got to say to themselves, 'There's the little guy who works with the monster'" . . . Lugosi was a sweetheart of a guy and he loved me.

I never worked steady. If it wasn't for my newsstand, I would have never made a living. I'm just a ham-and-egg actor.
