Who’s Your Favorite Dracula?
Halloween is just around the corner during the “Frog Days of Fall”, and I’m sure we’ll see a number of vampires…specifically Count Dracula. Over the years, most impressions (good and bad, but mostly bad) of Count Dracula are based on the classic Bela Lugosi portrayal of the blood thirsty count.
There have been many scary Draculas including John Carradine, Lon Chaney, Jr., Christopher Lee and Frank Langella, who played the count on broadway and in film. Actually, British actor Christopher Lee played Dracula in 11 movies, more than any other actor! For my money, it’s Bela! Let’s take a look at a scene from the 1931 horror film “Dracula” starring Bela Lugosi.
