Unusual find at a local flea market
« on: July 06, 2019, 04:06:12 PM »
I just picked up a good condition CD of the original Bela Lagosi Dracula. It is still a master piece.

LATER : Now I have it as an MP4.  :eusa_clap:

Not quite. Max Schreck had already portrayed this character, although with the name of "Count Orlok", in the Geman movie "Nosferatu", shot in 1921. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nosferatu

Hi José,

I have seen the silent movie "Nosferatu" but it a different story to Bram Stoker's 1931 Dracula. Son of the Dragon, Vlad Tepes was the model for Bram Stoker's Dracula. He was an interesting guy, successfully defended against the Ottoman invasion for a length of time before being murdered. He has been portrayed as a monster but from what I can gather there were no nice guys in the wars between the Ottomans and any of Europe.
