Do Turks Look Like Vampires?

Well, okay, no.
I'm just trying to come up with a provocative title for my posting.
But have you ever noticed that Ataturk (father of Turkish nationalism) is always portrayed in portraits so he looks like Bela Lugosi as Dracula?

Ataturk
Bela
Separated at Birth?

Especially strange, considering in real life, Ataturk looked like a nice guy, and not undead at all.
Chalk it up to nationalism.
Next I'll learn that Chiang Kai Shek didn't really look like Destro.
CKS
Destro

No? Don't worry; no one else sees it, either.
