Dracula

A FILM BY: Tod Browning
WRITTEN BY: Bram Stoker (by), Hamilton Deane (from the play adapted by)
STARRING: Bela Lugosi, Helen Chandler, David Manners

"I never drink ... wine." This grand, cobweb-infested monument changed the face of Hollywood horror, imbuing the genre with hazy sensuality, mittel European mysticism, and a cadre of armadillos. (Rats were judged too unseemly, even for a vampire's castle.) Bela Lugosi's perfectly-enunciated performance as Count Dracula set the standard for the character and doomed the Hungarian tragedian to a lifetime of typecasting. Vampires drink blood, but poor Dwight Frye chews the scenery magnificently as Renfield.
