  1. Have the film, saw it, and agree with you 100%!

  2. Agree with much of what you say. But one major thing I couldn't get passed – Villarias looks so much like Carl Reiner during Sid Caesar days! Lugosi is my Dracula too, for him alone I prefer the English version. But all you note is true.

  3. Hey thanks guys! Just realized this got posted. Glad you liked.

  4. I agree in the main. Bela Lugosi is the better Dracula. However, Villairias’ delivery of certain lines is more snide- which I think works well.

  5. FYI – your video link is down (& looks like permanently) very sad as I was hoping for a peek! ;-( I will definitely look for a DVD. Thanks!

  6. I have to agree this is a much better film than Browning’s. The action is less stilted and the ladies are far more sensual
