Lugosi also knew how to work a cape, as evidenced by some clips in Plan 9 itself. He's swinging that thing around like it's part of his body. I bet if he'd lived, we'd have seen something much more menacing than Faceless Chiropractor.Lugosi first does it in an abbot & Costello movie, to shield himself from Van Helsing's cross in Dracula
Also, the spectacular amount of poor gun safety. The Rifftrax for Plan 9 has a running joke of Kevin or Tom making gunshot noises every-time someone in the movie is gesturing with a gun in someone's direction (someone they are not intending to threaten) with a finger on the trigger - including at one point scratching their temple with the gun barrel. It's amazing.Plan 9 takes terrible to a level of almost unearthly perfection. The very obviously cardboard flying saucer, the weird zombie mashup... the large part of the film in which the chiropractor stand-in, who is a good six inches taller than Bela Lugosi goes around with his cloak over his face all the time to prevent us from realizing that he is not Bela Lugosi.
